"*COVID-19 & CSA Membership: For the duration of this public health crisis, extra food safety precautions will be taken when harvesting/processing our vegetables, and CSA pickup days have been augmented to limit contact and observe physical distancing protocols*

2021 Community Supported Agriculture Programme

Mount Wolfe Farm offers a year-round service for people who are interested in locally and ethically grown food. Using ecological and regenerative farm practises, we produce a variety of summer & winter vegetables, herbs and free-range meat chickens and eggs on our farm. We also provide a selection of foodstuffs produced by a network of local farmers and producers to bring you a wider range of groceries than most CSA programs. In addition to all the bounty of our farm, members have access to Ontario tender fruit, apples, cider, microgreens, honey, maple syrup, preserves, dry beans, dry soups, baked goods, flour, trout, soy candles, zero-waste home care products, handmade soaps, natural bodycare products, and more. 

CSA members come to the farm on Fridays between 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm during the summer months to collect their share. During the summer and fall seasons (from May to October), when the market gardens are bountiful, CSA pick-ups are weekly. During the winter and spring season (November to March) CSA pick-up changes to every second week. New for 2021/2022 season is Home Delivery: from November-March your CSA share will be delivered to your home.

There are six different ways to share in our Mount Wolfe Farm CSA programme: 

  • Full Year Share
  • Full Year Half Share
  • Summer Share
  • Summer Half Share
  • Winter Share
  • Workshare Memberships (Limited availability)

To give you more choice and flexibility, we use a points system for the foodstuffs, homestuffs, and chicken. Each item is assigned a point value which can be used to ‘shop’ week by week. If you use your points budget before the end of your membership, extra points packages can be purchased at any time. 

Please note that 2021 CSA membership prices include a COVID expense, carbon offsetting, and home delivery for select share types.

*Toronto folks: you can arrange for delivery of your CSA to the Sorauren Farmers Market (West End) to be picked up Mondays 3pm-7pm at no extra charge*

Workshare Memberships

  Applies to Full Year, Full Year Half Share, Summer Share

Ecological farming at this scale can be a labour-intensive operation. Although Mount Wolfe Farm uses a tractor and various farm implements, hands-on tending to the crops and animals is always needed.

Every year, Mount Wolfe Farm offers a limited number of Workshare memberships. The workshare provides all the same food that is available to the various share options at a reduced price. Partially designed for young families and people with limited incomes, we offer this price break in exchange for your commitment to help our farm team produce healthy and tasty vegetables.

If you’re the kind of person who likes to get your hands dirty and wants to become involved in Mount Wolfe Farm’s operations, and if you’d like to save even more on your weekly grocery bill, then perhaps the workshare option is for you.

  •   Small Workshare Membership: $390 discount for 30 hours of labour*
  •   Medium Workshare Membership: $585 discount for 45 hours labour*
  •   Large Workshare membership: $910 discount for 70 hours labour*

*hours to be completed over the entire term of your membership, not per week.

Applies to Full Year, Full Year Half Share, Summer Share

We recognize that many folks are losing access to outdoor spaces where they can take part in productive work together. We’d like to explore Workshare memberships with people and families who are interested in:

  •    General farm labour, planting, weeding and harvesting, chicken chores
  •    Off-farm assistance at farmers markets
  •    Trail maintenance & woodlot management

If you want to learn more about this membership option and pricing details for various share types, please email us at info@mountwolfefarm.ca or call us at 647-335-8897.

Meat Chickens

Mount Wolfe Farm raises free-range chickens as an integral part of our soil-fertility and pest-management strategy.

The breed we raise are Bonnie’s Heavy Reds. Our chickens are kept in three flocks of 50-60 birds, and each flock has free-range access to 10,000 square feet of fallow market garden plots. Over the course of four months, our chickens eat a diverse range of insects and plants, while fertilizing the fallow garden plots and improving them for the next growing season. At the end of their lives, we take the chickens to be slaughtered at Schefter Poultry Processors, an inspected facility near Harriston, Ontario. Whole chickens weigh on average 4–5 lbs. Chicken is also available in a range of bone-in, skin-on cuts and is stored in freezers at our farm. 

CSA Members can use points for chicken 

No matter which type of share you have, you can use your points to get chicken! On pickup-day there will be a selection of chicken cuts available, while supplies last. Each package will have a point-value so it’s as easy as picking out your preferred cut/size and adding it to your basket.
