What is CSA?

Young Family

We are sorry that we will not be offering CSA shares in 2015.

We encourage you to buy locally, whether from a CSA, an on-farm market, or a producers-only farmers' market. We have a market on our farm in Elora. To find out what is available, please call our Veggie Line at: 931-937-8162.

The following information is intended for those of you who are researching CSAs:

CSA means: Community Supported Agriculture. It means that a farmer commits to producing a variety of seasonal vegetables in return for your prepaid commitment to season-long purchase and pick-up of these fresh veggies for your family.

CSA creates a “2-way” street. Your membership helps pay for seed, equipment, fuel, irrigation and labor. In return, members receive fruits and vegetables, farm fresh, each week. Everyone shares in the risks and the benefits of farming.

A good source for CSAs and markets country-wide is: localharvest.org

What's in your garden?

Beans, broccoli, cabbage, cantaloupe, carrots, cauliflower, collards, corn, cucumber, eggplant, fennel, field peas, greens, herbs, kale, leeks, lettuce, melons, okra, onions, peas, hot peppers, sweet peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, radish, spinach, squash, strawberries, sunflowers, Swiss chard, tomatoes, turnips and sometimes flowers.

Of course, crops are seasonal (and Mother Nature bats last, as every farmer knows), so don’t expect everything all at once. Additional quantities may be purchased, when available, for canning, juicing or drying. (making wine!!!)

Buy Locally and Seasonally

Old Family
  • We also love to eat what we grow.
  • Locally grown food tastes better and is more nutritious. It ripened on the plant, not in a truck. We know where our veggies spent last night.
  • Imported foods do not have the same safety standards as food grown in the U.S.A.
  • C.S.A. Membership encourages new friendships and knowledge about the pleasures and pitfalls of farming. We are stewards of the land and active environmentalists.

Just look at the diffence a few years of consuming vast quantities of healthy, nutritious Dennison’s Farm fruits and vegetables have made.
