2021-2022 Winter CSA
Program runs from October 30th, 2021 - February 5th, 2022
WINTER CSA REGISTRATION FORM
This Winter we're hoping to be able to attend the Sackville Farmer's Market throughout the Winter, pending an indoor market location! If the Market remains outdoors for the Winter, we'll once again offer home deliveries on Saturdays in the Sackville area.
For our Moncton & Dieppe shareholders, CSA pick-ups will occur biweekly at Corn Crib Natural Foods. Please bring your own bag to pick up your share & leave the red Sweet Soil insulated bag for us to pick up & refill!
** If you would like to host a pick-up location at your home or business so that you and your friends/family/neighbours can have access to a pick-up location closer to home in your neighbourhood, please let us know!
The Basic Veggies Only share will consist of seasonally specific storage crops and freshly harvested crops from our farm.
The Premium Share including preserves will consist of veggies from our farm and $10/delivery of value added products from our partners at L'Hirondelle Farm (learn more below in "What to Expect")
On our registration form, please sign up for one pick-up location and arrive during the specified hours to pick up your share. Please also indicate your preferred CSA share option.

What to Expect
You will receive produce reflective of the seasonal nature of farming in Southeastern New -Brunswick. At Sweet Soil Organic Farm, we grow our crops during the Spring, Summer and Fall and use our two caterpillar tunnels, one greenhouse and two storage coolers to keep all our produce well into the Winter and following Spring. We harvest, pre-wash and store all of our root crops in the Fall in our coolers; Harvest fresh salad mixes, kale and other brassicas throughout the Winter and store our onions, garlic, potatoes and Winter Squash in our more temperate semi-cooler.
A variety of the following products will be available throughout the Winter CSA~
carrots, squash, onions, Fall turnips, rutabega, garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, romanesco, kale, lettuce, beets, parsnips, potatoes, spinach, salad greens mix, lettuce, green onions, fennel, radicchio, chicory, red & green storage cabbage, napa cabbage, winter radish, swiss chard, pumpkins, parsley & leeks.
We are grateful and fortunate to be able to offer the delicious and superb quality value added products from our friends at L'Hirondelle Farm (Saint Marie Du Kent, NB) through our Winter CSA program! Their preserves, jams and pickles have been hugely popular with our customers over the years and include favourites like Raspberry Cocoa Jam, Bread & Butter Pickles, Basil Salt, Rhubarb Chutney, Blueberry Lime Jam, Spanish Diced Tomatoes, Apple Pie Jam & Apple Butter. Their products preserve all the flavours of farm-fresh Summer fruits and veggies to be enjoyed in the dead of Winter!
CSA means Community Supported Agriculture or Community Shared Agriculture.
Through the CSA model, we (the farmers) accept your dollars as an investment in our farm and your share is repaid in delivery of an equal value of organic vegetables.
Our farm commits to:
Providing a diversity of high quality certified organic products over the course of the csa program.
We commit to deliver on time and to harvest, store and prepare all produce according to food safety guidelines, with care and attention.
We ask that you commit to:
Picking up your share (labelled with your name) during pick-up hours at the location that you sign up for when you register.
If you cannot pick-up your share please make arrangements with someone (friend or family member) who can pick up on your behalf. If you don't pick-up, your vegetables will be donated, either to a family in need or to the food bank.
