Thank you very much for the wonderful time on your farm.  We had a relaxing and peaceful time-the children enjoyed riding-and the little cats-and Sparkey!  The breakfast every morning was better then most 5 star hotels! And the taste of fresh eggs is not comparable to the normal ones!  Klass' favorite was the potatoes!

Thank you very very very much!!  It was really the right choice that we had our wedding here with your help.  We had a wonderful and precious time.  We won't forget it!  Someday when we move back to Ontario, we will come back and take a kitten!  We love you both!

Thank you for the wonderful stay in your guesthouse.  We had a great time.  You have a beautiful farm and we really enjoyed the animals, especially the kittens.  We will make sure we tell all our friends about your great B&B!

CSA Food Basket

Fresh Organic Grown Produce At A Fair Price For Both You And The Farmer

Based on the Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) model, people purchase annual shares in the farm's harvest and, in return, receive weekly food baskets full of fresh produce throughout the season.

The weekly harvest is shared between all members, with variety and quantity varying with the time of year. Smaller quantities will be in your basket early in the season while July, August and September will have an abundance.

Consumer demand for locally produced, affordable organic food has driven the evolution of CSA's.

UPDATE: We are now taking applications for the Summer CSA 2014 season. Get on the list now to reserve your basket of local organic fresh vegetables. We are only taking 65 families on Wednesday, 65 families Thursday and 65 families on Friday. Reserve your spot now so you are not disappointed.

When you join, you are not just buying vegetables, you are supporting sustainable farming practices and contributing to a reliable, healthy, local food supply and income for the farmers.

What is a Share?

One share is geared to provide produce for a family of 2 Adults and 2 Small Children.  Larger families may want to consider purchasing two shares.

Organic Produce

Growing food organically includes such practices as the use of crop rotations, cover cropping and using natural ammendments to improve the soil and plant health.

Growing organicaly is more labour intensive than traditional farming. Edencrest Farms is Certified Organic. We only use organic untreated seeds and heirloom varieties. We do not use any form of chemicals, herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers.

At our annual Open House, you will see the gardens and the pick up area for your baskets of produce. There will be wagon rides, refreshments, games, baby chicks hatching, new born calves, kittens, and a lot of fun! Bring your family and experience the beautiful view overlooking Minesing Valley.
