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. Consumer demand for locally produced, affordable organic food has driven the evolution of CSA's. The weekly harvest is shared between all members, with variety and quantity varying with the time of year.
Customize Your Basket
Now, you can customize your weekly basket choices. Starting in October 2015, you will be able to customize your basket on a weekly basis! There will be the standard winter vegetables, like our organic carrots, ontions, potatoes, apples from our cold storage, plus our own home grown lettuce or spinach, and then you can choose 5 more items from a list of organic fruits and vegetables that we will have available.
Unlike some CSA programs, every fruit and vegetable is hand-selected by us, and most of it is planted, grown and picked by us, here at our farm in Minesing. We are the farmer!
We now offer home delivery of your weekly CSA basket. After you choose your custom contents, we'll deliver the basket right to your door, instead of you coming to pick it up. Quality organic, fresh from the farm with the convenience of home delivery (in the Barrie area). Additional fees apply.
Now Taking Applications
We are now taking applications for the Winter CSA 2015-2016 season. Get on the list now to reserve your basket of local organic fresh vegetables.
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, and your food tastes great!
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.

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.
My kids really enjoyed going out to Edencrest, to see the animals and the farm. I was delighted to findout all the fresh CSA food you have available, including the pasture-raised beef.
