Welcome to our Online Store!
Welcome to our ONLINE FARM STORE. As of July 21, 2020 we have closed the online store so we can focus our efforts on returning to the Guelph Market. We will re-open this store in the fall.
How our Online Farm Store Works…
The Online store is temporarily closed as we are able to sell enough produce through our other outlets. We are stocking Valeriote Market with produce on Friday afternoons, and the Guelph Farmer’s Market has recently re-opened.
Our CSA shares are sold out for the season, please visit us at the Market to purchase our produce. Neighbours, and those willing to drive to the farm to regularly pick up produce- please email us and we will give you our cell number to place custom orders for pick-up in our Farm Store on Saturday afternoons. Thanks for everyone’s support!
Will CSA Shares be pre-boxed this season?
Everything will be pre-boxed (we much prefer market-style pick up, since it allows us to offer CSA share members more choice in what they pick up, but safety is a higher priority this season.)
Can I add produce to my CSA box?
Only if you are picking up on Saturday! We do not offer custom orders for Wednesdays.
Can I change the location of where I pick up my CSA
You must choose for the entire season where you will pick up. If, for whatever reason, you need to change we will charge our usual $5 “late fee” for you to pick-up at another location.
Can I use my Market Bucks to place orders from the online store?
Yes, this is the best way to use your market credit! Simply place an order and write “Market Bucks” in the order notes rather than paying. We will see your order come in and reduce your tally.
Why would I buy a CSA when I could just order everything online when I need it?
The CSA is the most farm-supporting of our buying options as it is easiest for us to plan for from a growing perspective. It genuinely works for many people, but not for everyone and we accept this. The reward of being in our CSA is that CSA members are offered the best of our produce (the first tomatoes of the season, for example), and the best prices. The online store is only loaded with produce after we ensure our CSA members get their boxes filled.
Will there be extra produce available at the market stand?
Sometimes. It is safer for us to pre-box orders than have you come and touch the produce during the time of this time, so we will sell out of produce using pre-orders if possible. If not possible, we will bring extra produce.
I want to know about your donation and subsidized produce program.
We are accepting donations to help others in the community afford our food. This supports our farm and a community member at the same time=double win! If you need a subsidized share or subsidized produce please send us an email and we will add you to our list.
Can I place an order by phone?
If you are unable to access the internet, yes. If you experience trouble with the online store, yes. In all other cases, please use the online store to reduce our stress in the office.
