NATURALLY GROWN PRODUCE
Our produce is grown without the use of any chemicals. We utilize natural fertilizers from our farm. It is all hand seeded, hand weeded, hand harvested, and hand washed. We utilize organic and regenerative growing practices such as minimum and non-till which increases the biological profile of our soil.
Vegetables will be sold throughout the summer at Farmers’ Markets in Edmonton and Jasper. Farm gates sales and delivery are also available. Please contact us for pricing and availability, and to place orders. We are also pleased to announce that we will be growing cold hardy veggies through out the winter months with our newly acquired greenhouses.

CSA – Community Supported Agriculture
CSA or Community Supported Agriculture is a way for you to invest in and support a farm. You pay for the subscription up front which allows for the farmer to purchase supplies for the upcoming growing season. Once the gardens starts growing and producing, you begin receiving weekly boxes of fresh produce. The program runs on average of 12 weeks starting mid-July and running into September. It’s a great way to get involved and know where your food comes from!
Every year is different, and with that carries risk. With a CSA, you share the risk along with the farmer. We do our very best to reduce and mitigate, but there are always uncontrollable factors such as weather, bugs and disease that we have to react to. When joining our CSA, you share the risk and depending on the year or time of year, this can include reduced shares due to crop failures or increased shares when the gardens are in abundance. Know that we, your farmers, strive to have a garden that is abundant and that when crop failures, etc. do happen, we are just or are more disappointed than you are. We truly appreciate your support!
We encourage people to come and visit the farm to see what we do and what it takes to raise and grow healthy, nutrient dense food. All we ask is that you contact us ahead of time to ensure we are there. We strongly believe in transparency of everything we do.

LESSONS LEARNED FROM PREVIOUS SEASON:
The last two years of growing seasons were great learning experiences for us and we will be implementing many changes this coming year to provide a better CSA experience for everyone! We will be constructing a second green house next spring, and will be able to grow more plants during the shoulder seasons so we can provide more variety within the program. We are also planning to increase the amount of storable vegetables so you’re not pressured to use everything within a week to prevent spoilage.
We have recruited some help with the kids again this coming year we can focus more on the farm to increase productivity of our gardens.
Next year we are planning to have more variety in your weekly shares as we are focusing on expanding our gardens to all have raised permanent beds – with allows for much better drainage (less chance of loosing crops to flooding). As well are focusing on methods to reduce weed pressures including the use of landscape fabric within rows of vegetables, and burlap sacks for control between our beds. We will also continue to increase our inventory of row covers and insect netting so we can reduce the amount of pest damage to the vegetables this year.
This year our CSA program will run for 12 weeks again, starting as early as we can (hopefully late June). We will be offering three share sizes , with an egg add on option and a meat option as well. The meat CSA option will be similar to last year with the cuts of meat (beef, chicken, pork) varying week to week. We will be supplying each member with two reusable bags this year that you can bring back every week and have refilled. Your bag will have a name tag on it with your share size and any allergy or food restrictions you might have.
