Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is an arrangement that provides a direct connection between community members and local farmers. The upfront payment by dedicated CSA members helps a CSA farmer by providing an immediate income to begin the season and a reliable outlet for his food. In return, the CSA members get the freshest produce/berries/fruit available and have a direct link to where their food is grown. The CSA members share the risk of production and reduce the need for time-consuming marketing. This allows the farmer to concentrate on growing high quality food, while strengthening the local food system as a whole. CSA members eat healthy, sustainable produced, local food and have the satisfaction of knowing where it came from, how it was grown, and who grew it!
At The Blueberry Patch Farms we grow a variety of vegetables, berries, fruit and flowers we are committed to practise natural organic growing methods. We do our best to provide produce and fruit with ultimate freshness, flavour and nutrition. Located south of Creston B.C, we are dedicated to bringing fresh, sustainable produce to the community.
WHAT'S IN A SHARE? Our CSA farm share boxes contain at least 6-8 different assortments of vegetables/berries and fruit sometimes including a preserved item. You will also receive our weekly newsletter which includes a recipe. WHEN & WHERE DO I PICK UP MY SHARE? Once a week, you will pick up your CSA Harvest box of vegetables and assortment which will vary depending on what's in season. We will contact you to notify you of pick up times and place.
