SLEEPY G FARM IS A COMMUNITY CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture”. CSA members purchase a subscription to the farm’s harvest prior to the growing season. In exchange for the membership fee, CSA members will receive a portion of the farm's harvest throughout the growing season. CSA programs are a wonderful way for people to strengthen their relationship with food through an increased awareness of the cycles of nature and the gift of harvest. By being a member of our CSA you will enjoy fresh, ripe, seasonal produce grown right here in Northwestern Ontario!
There are a number of other benefits to the CSA member which include supporting your local economy, minimizing the carbon footprint related to feeding your family, becoming connected with farming, and trust in the quality and safety of the food you eat. We, the farmers are directly accountable to you, our members.
Benefits to the farmers include a guaranteed sale of much of the farm’s produce, money at the beginning of the season when it is needed most, and pride in contributing to our community in a real and meaningful way. Additionally, we get the opportunity to get to know our Members on a personal level which is often very rewarding as many of our customers are passionate about the same things as us. CSA is not only about high quality food – it’s also about community building.
Sleepy G has a mechanism for lower income families to access the CSA programme. If you would like to apply for a CSA membership subsidy please email us for more details.
