CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and it is just as simple as it sounds.
Mapleview Fresh offers you the opportunity to support your local farmer by investing in the coming season’s crop. This up-front commitment gives the grower the security to focus on growing, with the peace-of-mind that comes with knowing that their crop is pre-sold.
As the consumer, or shareholder, you pay a set fee (our plans start as low as $12 a week!) that allows you to enjoy the farm’s bounty, available weekly throughout the season, which spreads natural risk of farming across a much larger group of people.
This system truly connects people to their food outside of the status quo. You should expect the utmost accountability, and transparency that comes with having a personal relationship with your farmer. You will also receive our weekly newsletter, including recipes, chef spotlights, and greenhouse updates, to keep you informed of how, when and where your food is grown. In addition to convenient, locally and sustainably grown food, your CSA membership provides you with a great way to teach your family about food production and healthy eating.
Exciting right? But wait, there’s more…
Mapleview Fresh is now proud to be introducing a new – the first of its’ kind in Canada – spin on the traditional CSA model by offering a Live CSA option! Yes, you read that right. In addition to our Fresh-Cut weekly greens and herbs, you can now buy shares allowing you to enjoy LIVING towers of greens and herbs in your home, or even on your patio, ready to harvest at your convenience. Simply choose your crops, and the number of towers you would like, and as you use one up, let us exchange it with a new tower full of living greens and herbs.
