CSA Program Returns for 2017 (COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE)

 

What is a CSA program?

A mutual commitment between a farm and a community of supporters. It links people directly with their source of food. By purchasing a share in the season’s harvest, you receive a weekly package of fresh, organic, sustainably produced food. Rather than simply purchasing food, our customers become “members” of this CSA farm who receive a portion of the farm’s harvest.

Here at Rumar Farm, we have the unique ability to offer in our weekly baskets both Top Quality vegetables, as well as a varied selection of delicious and nutritious seasonal fruit. Our CSA runs for 18 weeks from June to October. Members are responsible for showing up at the agreed upon pick up site each week to receive your share of harvested produce.

For details on how to become a Member call 905-321-3969 or email now to register. Please view the member-agreement-for-2017
