Welcome to our farm!
At Almost Urban, we bring local, fresh vegetables from our farm to you through our CSA program and at the St. Norbert Farmers’ Market !

Shares are now available for our 2015 CSA Season !  

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a method of distributing food in a way that connects you directly to local farm produce. No middleman. Buy a share of our farm’s seasonal produce before the growing season and then receive a weekly supply of fresh, in-season, naturally grown produce all summer long. Check it out here.

Why is this a great idea?

  • Each week, you’ll receive a selection of fresh, naturally grown vegetables. Naturally grown means we say NO to pesticides, herbicides and artificial fertilizers. We believe in nurturing the soil to keep it healthy, and healthy soil grows great tasting, nutrient rich vegetables that are good for you!
  • Our farm is right at the edge of the city, just one kilometer from the St. Norbert Farmers’ Market. Our vegetables travel a very short food mile, which equals a low carbon footprint.
  • The CSA model supports local farmers. That means your food dollar stays in your community.
  • You know who grows your food, and how it is grown.

All of this adds up to peace of mind about the food you eat, and healthier meals for you and your family.

“We’ve really felt fortunate to have such high quality food and it was so rewarding to have such a clear connection to the local food system.” – Sharon Taylor
