2023 Community Supported Agriculture Programme

Mount Wolfe Farm offers a year-round service for people who are interested in locally and ecologically grown food. Using non-certified organic and regenerative farming practises, we grow a wide variety of summer & winter vegetables. Our flock of organically-fed pastured laying hens provides eggs as a perfect compliment to the CSA share.

Beyond vegetables and eggs, we also provide members with a selection of foodstuffs produced by our 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 grass-fed beef, pastured chicken, responsibly farmed trout, tender fruit, apples, prepared meals, cider, microgreens, honey, maple syrup, preserves, dry beans, dry soups, baked goods, flour, 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 seasons (Thanksgiving to March) CSA pickups change to every second week. And when the weather turns cold we deliver, within the Greater Caledon Area, directly to your front door.

To give you more choice and flexibility, we've moved to online for custom ordering of all foodstuffs and extra veggies!

Upon joining, we’ll create a pre-loaded account for you on our Localline CSA members pricelist. Each week, you can order your basic CSA basket and ‘shop’ for any extra veggies, foodstuffs, meats, eggs, homestuffs, fresh flowers etc. that draws down on the funds you’ve prepaid.

If you use up your CSA funds before the end of your membership, extra can be purchased at any time.

Workshare Memberships

Applies to Full Year, Full Year Half Share, Summer Share (limited number of workshare memberships still available for 2023)

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

$490 discount for 35 hours of labour*

Large Workshare Membership

$890 discount for 60 hours labour*

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

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

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

CSA Members can use points for chicken

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

The breed we raise are Frey’s Rustic Rangers. 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 cuts and is stored in freezers at our farm.

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.
