What is a Farm Box?

Our farm boxes work off the principal of receiving a portion of really fresh farm produce once a week. It adds value to value by fostering a close relationship between farmers and neighbors, between the land and the table.

 

 

 

 

 What will you get in a Farm Box?

Part of the what makes the boxes both fun and practical is that the contents will change every week depending on what is growing at peak in the garden. Things you can expect throughout the summer include (but are not limited to) carrots, beets, beans, turnips, chard, kale, salad, eggplants, tomatoes, potatoes, strawberries, tayberries, fennel, broccoli, peppers, onions, cucumbers, zucchini, and garlic. We typically include fresh bread as a part of the box as well, unless you prefer to just have more vegetables.  Beautiful fresh cut flowers are often offered as an option also.

“We were really pleased with the farm boxes –

couldn’t keep up with abundance – so many veggies.”

“Having just moved to Salt Spring and not having the time or really the space to put in

a full garden, hooking up with the farm made total sense….every week presented

a new challenge in menu design, which kept me on my toes creatively and I loved it!”
