What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) ?
A CSA operated farm distributes its products to local area members on a shared basis.
Members receive a box of seasonal, local produce each week. The amount can vary depending on the progress of the growing season. A CSA is a great way to support your local farmer and ensure you eat fresh local produce throughout the season!
Our CSA for 2017
We expect our 2018 season to run for 16 weeks, mid June to end of September.
We offer a Regular share at $540. This will generally feed a family of four (ie. 2 adults, 2 children), or two vegetarian adults. We also have the “Bring It On” option, which includes the Regular share, and then adds much more! Compare the two choices below. A Bring It On share is $870.
You pick up your weekly CSA box at one of the downtown locations (Wolseley Ave or Warsaw Ave), or at our farm in St. Norbert.

Regular or Bring It On shares
We’re proud of the variety you receive in our Regular box. We’ve noticed that some members really enjoy the little extras we include, such as preserves, dried herbs, flowers, soap or tea. Others have been taking advantage of our pastured poultry, bulk vegetables, and farm gate eggs. The “Bring It On” share is a way to participate in the full spectrum of Almost Urban Vegetables. You’ll receive all the contents of the Regular share, plus many additional items, because you’ve told us to “Bring It On”!
Bring It On shares include:
• Our usual array of beautiful, fresh-picked, vegetables
• Preserves such as pickles and apple butter
• Homemade goat milk soap
• Micro greens and salad garnishes
• Specialty vegetables such as heritage cherry tomatoes, mini-peppers, and gourmet herbs
• Cut flowers for your table
• 6 fresh, pastured chickens during the season.
• Honey from our farm
But wait – some of our members adhere to vegetarian choices – so they can substitute the meat items for an equal value of storage vegetables like beets, potato, winter squash, tomato, onion and carrots.
It gets better! We will home deliver the fresh meat items and bulk vegetarian options (within Winnipeg).
As always, you will do better with the CSA than if you bought the same things at our market stall in St. Norbert Farmers Market.
