Spring Box - Apr 22-Jun 3- Deposit
The Ontario Spring Box Subscription is a 7-week produce box subscription that starts Wednesday, April 22, 2020. Each box will include 5-6 different items including flowers and seedlings on occasion! For example, we'll be sourcing wild edibles (ramps, fiddleheads), greenhouse crops, greens, microgreens, asparagus, rhubarb, herbs, radishes, spring onions and more! Boxes will contain a mix of conventional and organic produce.
The Spring Box will not provide you with enough produce for the entire week, but it will give you a sampling of what we have available right now in Ontario! It's geared toward 1-2 person households or small families.
Farms that we source spring produce include:
- Bowman's Organics (Wallenstein, ON)
- Elmira's Own Tomatoes (Elmira, ON)
- Loco Fields (Stratford, ON)
- Barrie's Asparagus (Cambridge, ON)
- Fertile Ground Farm (St. Agatha, ON)
- Working Centre Hacienda Garden (Kitchener, ON)
- We also buy from the Elmira Produce Auction, a cooperative of farmers selling locally grown wholesale produce.
