Natura Farms CSA

We grow a huge variety of produce ranging from the traditional favourites to more exotic and unusual CSA items. Berries (strawberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries) will find their way into the weekly CSA boxes on a regular basis. We also provide apples, grapes, pie pumpkins, cantaloupes, and of course a wide range of delicious vegetables. See our comprehensive website for detailed availability projection and growing schedules.

Along with their weekly box, stuffed full of our best seasonal produce, CSA members will also receive a fantastic selection of PYO fruits and vegetables vouchers for use at our farm. This gives every CSA-er the flexibility to stock up on things they would like more of at no extra cost.

CSA members and their families are always invited to come out to the farm and get involved. Learning opportunities abound for the whole family: ask our staff questions about the farm and our seasonal work, come and learn about sustainable farming techniques and how you can utilise them in your own garden, talk to us about the ethics of sustainable farming, take a walk by our tranquil lake, pick yourself a bag of veggies to take home, or get volunteer to help us out with the harvest. We always welcome CSA members onto our farm.

We will be hosting at least Two Fun Family Farm Days with potluck lunch for CSA members! Come along and meet the staff and other CSA members, and enjoy a family day out.

We are aiming for an 18 week season running from June to October. If the weather is kind to us then CSA members will recieve more boxes, right up until the first frost. At the end of the season all CSA members are invited to come out and help themselves to anything they would like and stock up for the winter.

We will be delivering to several drop-sites in the Twin CIties. Full details will be listed on our website shortly. Members of our CSA community can also collect their box from the farm if this is convenient for them.
