Community Supported Agriculture

Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, referrers to a particular group of individuals who support one or more local farms by sharing in the benefits of their harvest.

Typically, at the beginning of the season, subscriptions are sold by a farm or cooperative for a weekly food box either delivered or to be picked up. Oftentimes, starting in May, and ending around Thanksgiving, members can receive a variety of vegetables, lettuces, meats, eggs or fruit. The price per week can vary from $25 up to $100 and can feed a family for several meals and supplement your visits to the grocery store.

CSA memberships will provide fresh nutrient dense freshly harvested foods in a convenient and accessible way. Here are a few that we recommend:

Kawartha CSA
Stoddart’s Family Farm
Twin Creeks Farm
Everdale Farm
Vicki’s Veggies

We come from the worlds of professional baking, restaurants, catering, home-cooking, and teaching. We believe in the local, organic and good farming movements. And by applying artisan bread traditions and using nutritionally rich heritage grains such as Red Fife wheat, spelt, rye and buckwheat we can showcase this simple idea in an approachable way. Named after our young daughter, Evelyn’s Crackers are simply handmade with local grains.
