A number of Community Supported Agriculture farms (CSAs) in the area still have farm shares available for last-minute members.
Becoming a CSA member means you will have fresh food all summer and fall, direct from the farm to your plate. Most CSA farms will start pick-up and/or delivery around the 3rd week of June this year, so act quickly to take advantage of the entire growing season!
Farms with summer-fall shares still available include:
The Keady and Owen Sound Markets are open year-round; Clarksburg, Port Elgin and Walkerton will all open within the next few weeks.
