CSA stands for community-supported agriculture. CSA programs connect communities with their local farmers. Prior to the growing season, community members in Ottawa & Gatineau pay a subscription to our farm in exchange for a weekly or bi-weekly box of fresh vegetables.
CSA members play a central role in our farm. By joining our CSA, you are directly supporting us in our mission to grow tasty, nutrient-dense food using regenerative organic farming practices.
Memberships are paid in the off-season, which helps us buy our seeds, compost, and the tools that we use every day on the farm. In return for your support, you will receive a diverse box of seasonal vegetables each week throughout the growing season.
What you get
10 or 18 baskets of certified organic vegetables over 20 weeks from June to October.
An average of $31.50 worth of vegetables per basket (usually 8 items).
Two weeks of vacation are included in full-time subscriptions.
Ability to switch pick-up locations and move pick-up dates around to fit your summer schedule.
A weekly newsletter with recipe ideas, storage tips, and stories from the farm.
Payment can be made in 3 installments.
*As a member of our CSA program, you will be asked to contribute 18$ (+ tax) to the Family Farmers Network, a collective marketing tool for farmers in Quebec.
"The Larkspur CSA was a highlight of my year. For the first time, I felt connected to my food. Thanks to Larkspur I ate vegetables that were in season and got to try a number of new vegetables and recipes. Delicata squash, daikon and radicchio are some of my new favourites. Alix and Doug are so generous with their knowledge and I loved hearing updates from the farm. Alix and Doug are committed to sustainability and food justice and I'm really excited to be a part of what they're doing in a small way." - Portia Larlee
"This was our first year trying a CSA share and we are very happy we did. The quality of the vegetables and herbs grown at Larkspur farm was excellent and the freshness was like nothing you would ever get at a supermarket. We enjoyed everything we got, but some highlights were the tomatoes that were so sweet and juicy, and the beautiful mixed greens that would stay crisp and delicious for over a week (on the rare occasion they lasted that long). Knowing the produce was all grown organically was really important to us too. We can't wait for next summer!" - Kathi & Lee
