** September 18, 2017** Despite opening up 20 more spots in the program this year, unfortunately our Winter Bounty Box program is already full for the season. Please sign up for the wait list below. Last season we were able to accept some people from the wait list in January.
The Winter Bounty Box program features our organically grown veggies, pasture-raised chicken, pork, turkey and eggs as well as coffee, chocolate and honey from other producers. The winter bounty box is available in Toronto, Collingwood and the Blue Mountains area. You can also pick up your box from our farm in Walter’s Falls. The Winter Bounty Box is customizable. You select what you want to go in your box bi-weekly from the list of available veggies, chicken, pork, turkey and eggs and other products to each delivery.
Program Length and Start
The Winter Bounty Box starts the first Thursday in November 16th and deliveries occur every other week until the end of March. You can pick and choose which dates you want to order a bounty box.
What is available on a biweekly basis depends on our supply and how much you all are ordering. You will be sent an online order form via email several days prior to Thursday delivery. You are responsible for filling out the order form on a timely basis and you must order a minimum of $30 worth of product per delivery. For items in short supply, orders will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
The following is a list of what we expect to be able to offer throughout the winter season:
Veggies include but are not limited to: Potatoes, beets, carrots, kale (early winter), swiss chard (early winter), winter squash, pumpkins, leeks, pea shoots, spinach, celeriac, radishes (early winter), salad turnips (early winter), cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi.
Pork: Chops, sausage, smoked hams, roasts, bacon (in limited supply), hocks.
Chicken: Whole birds, soup birds, boneless/skinless breasts, thighs, wings, drumsticks.
Turkey (available in January): Ground turkey
Eggs: Sold by the dozen
Other products: Directly traded and organically grown coffee and chocolate from Chocosol Traders and honey from Donald’s Honey.
Pricing and Commitment
Unlike our summer CSA program, there is no set price for the Winter Bounty Box. The amount you pay bi-weekly depends on the amount you order. We require a minimum order of $30 in order to pack and deliver a box to you.
In order to secure your space in the program we require a deposit of $120. You are not required to spend more than $120 for the whole season (a total of four deliveries). If you do not use the whole amount within the winter season, the deposit is not refundable. We are limiting the number of spaces in the program to try to keep a good supply of veggies available to those who have registered.
Sample $30 Box (the minimum order for delivery)
1 bunch of kale – $4
1 quart of potatoes – $5
1 170g bag of spinach – $6
1 dozen eggs – $6

Home deliveryis available to the people of The Blue Mountains, Collingwood and Toronto (from Etobicoke to the Beaches and as far north as North York). You can also pick up your Winter Bounty Box at our farm in Walter’s Falls.
