Sleepy G Farm's CSA farm shares are fully-customizable meaning you choose the veggie you want each week through our online box builder.
Sleepy G Summer CSA
The 2023 Summer CSA runs from July 26th to September 27th (10 weeks)
Yes, it's true.... We offer a Sliding-scale fee schedule!!
Our intention in the design of our Supporter and Access Shares is to have members select the membership that works for them financially without eligibility criteria or fear of judgment and knowledge that their membership supports not only a local farm but other community members.
This means that members who can to pay a little more can easily select a “Supporter Membership” where the extra funds directly subsidize our “Access Shares” intended for those who would like to become or continue to be a CSA member but find affordability to be an issue.
Standard Priced Shares
- Support the work we do and enjoy the fruits (vegetables) of our labour!
Supporter Shares +20%

Which share should I select?
This is a bit of a guide to our sliding-scale fees, we invite members to take stock of their financial resources and consider financial privilege while selecting their share. There is absolutely no pressure to go above the Standard priced shares – please choose what resonates with you. Likewise, members who are guided toward an Access share can select that membership with comfort and ease.
Access Shares are intended for those who are: single parents, low- wage income earners, newcomers, Black, Indigenous or person of Colour, live with a disability have medical expenses not covered by the province, have significant educational expenses, receive public assistance such as OW/ODSP or a senior without a workplace retirement pension etc.
Supporter Shares are intended for those who: are home owners, have investments, retirement savings, inherited money or have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education or gender and racial privilege, class background, etc.
This is not a strict criterion or an exhaustive list but rather a way to navigate your choice for the upcoming season.
Your choice goes toward creating a more diverse, inclusive and welcoming Sleepy G community. We invite you to spread the news about our CSA to anyone who might want to become a member!
