 Sign-up for 2019 now open! 

 An invitation from your local farm,

Pilgrims' Produce


Eat the freshest organic veggies & fruits

All. Season. Long. 

 

CSA stands for

Community Supported Agriculture.

It’s an opportunity for YOU to have a share in the amazing food that we, your local farmers, are growing.  


CSA is a program that connects the eaters (CSA members) directly to a farmer in the same locale. Generally, the members pay upfront for their full season share.  The farmer then provides the freshest and best quality produce directly to the members. There is a real relationship that both parties share, one which has been lost in our modern agriculture system, the relationship from our field to your home.

 

At Pilgrims’ Produce it’s Certified Organic. Always.

FAQ’s

 

 

What happens if I will be away?  

We understand… you may be going on a vacation or work out of town.  No problem. If you know in advance, please arrange for someone else to come fetch your box contents.   It is your responsibility to make sure they are “trained” so please make sure to tell them the time and location for the pick-up, and remind them to bring a bag!  It is wise to let us know in advance that someone else will be coming.

 

What if I forget my box?  Please notify us ASAP.  You have the option to email us and arrange another time when you can get the box (for example, you could meet us at our Farmers’ Market booth or come out to the farm).  We must be notified if you would like us to save it for you.

If no one comes for the box within a few days, we will donate it to the food bank.

 

What if I don’t like something in my box?  Did your mother ever make you eat all your veggies?!  Good. Part of the fun of a CSA is to learn to be more adventurous with eating.  Trying new items or learning new ways to prepare your less-favourite items. We provide great recipe ideas each week, highlighting the less-well-known items.  

Our Vernon VAC parking lot members have the opportunity to trade an item they don’t love in our swap box.  Due to the logistics we won’t have the swap box available for the other locations.

 

Do I get to choose what’s in my box?  No. We decide.  We grow a huge selection of produce and no two weeks will be the same.  Each week’s items are carefully chosen based on what is in season, and when you last had it.  Some weeks there may be repeated items from the previous week (gotta eat strawberries while the season lasts).  Have a look at some of our sample box photos to get an idea of what goes in the boxes. We aim to give you salad options each week, as well as “snacky” lunch items to feed your family.  You will see some staple items appearing more often, such as carrots, tomatoes or potatoes, while the more unusual items will be less often. Herbs and nuts are a fun addition to some week’s boxes, but not a major component.  We welcome your feedback on what you’d love to see more of, and less of, too.


What if I want more veggies or fruits?  Great!  We offer Add-Ons.  Our weekly newsletter includes a section called “Add-Ons” where we list extra items we have for sale.  This is a great way to get more of your favourites while they last or to make use of surplus for canning, dehydrating and freezing.
