CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, originally from Japan in the 1960s, has become more common with small local organic minded farms. The idea is to build a relationship between the farm and the community it serves. You sign up and become a member and active investor in the farm. Your dividends; a share of the bounty of produce the Promistery produces.
Benefits of becoming a CSA member include:
- First access to freshly harvested organic produce.
- Receive a discount on your produce for the season.
- Full access to the farm 5 days a week with your membership card.
- Discounts/free entry on all events and activities at the farm.
- $10 towards their CSA for every person they refer who also signs up.
The Promistery promises it will use only organic and sustainable farming practices. Our members will receive local organically grown produce for a guaranteed 20 weeks from the 2nd week of June to the mid/end of October. (Though you can start buying before, or continue after, then if produce is available.)
The CSA is a Free Choice CSA, meaning that members are able to choose what is in their share each week. If the members do not want to do a free choice CSA they can opt for a traditional CSA where we pick and prepare your share for you.
Each Saturday we will update our website with available produce for the following week. All CSA orders need to be placed on the website by Tuesday @ 6am to ensure they receive their order on Wednesday.
NEW for 2022 - Members will receive a Promistery Membership Card when registering. This card is linked to our online store. The members will be able to order their produce each week online and either pick it up from the farm, our St Catharines central location or have it delivered (at an additional cost). If you don’t want to order ahead, or forgot to, our farm stand will be open Tuesday - Saturday and you will be able to use your membership card here. You will also have more flexibility with ordering, not having to order the same quantity of produce each week.
Members will receive a personalized code (along with their member cards) to use in their shopping cart when checking out online. Member cards will need to be shown at the farm to have full access to the property. If you lose your membership card a new one can be replaced for $10. Membership cards can also be topped up if you need more funds added to continue your discount. You will receive your membership card when picking up your first order.
