HELLO EATERS!

 

We have about 1.5 acres in production this year in the heart of Fredericton, and we're ready to fill your bellies with our veggies, herbs, and fruit! Interest has been strong and shares are in high demand this season, we have sold out all of our shares for this season. We are thankful for everyone's interest in our CSA program!

Again this year we are working hard to facilitate a pay-what-you-can model for our shares, as we recognize the financial strain many of us are experiencing in this time of struggle.

A 'PSA' on 'CSA'

The term 'CSA' or community supported/shared agriculture is not common knowledge. If you're interested in its background, challenges, benefits, and...delicious advantages, check out this 3-minute read we've put together on the subject. 

The CSA Program

Through the course of the season, each customer will get at least $620 worth of farm fresh produce - roughly $30 per week. A mid-August example of what you might receive in a given share is:

  • Beans

  • Cabbage

  • Carrots

  • Garlic

  • Parsley

  • Onions

  • Potatoes

  • Summer Squash (zucchini)

 

Your veggies will be grown by this year’s Regenerative Farming Certificate (RFC) program participants, under the guidance of our farm manager, Mark Trealout. Mark has over 15 years experience managing CSAs, and over 20 years experience in agriculture.  

Our educational programs operate on a cost-recovery basis where all proceeds go back into supporting the Hayes Farm project. In addition to being an educational farm, we are also a working farm where we have various revenue streams, including CSA shares, and wholesale to Community Food Smart. These are important revenue streams for supporting the RFC program and to demonstrate the business aspect of farming to our interns, who take part in food distribution, and play critical roles in harvesting and packing the vegetable boxes.


We have lots on the go in our third year, and we are looking forward to having you on the farm. Please check our facebook page for Open Farm Day dates and other opportunities to connect with us.
