the Black Carrot Community Market Garden Share
Help support our market garden by buying into the Black Carrot Community Market Garden share. Similar to purchasing a traditional CSA membership, buying a Community Share provides the farm with financial security and a portion of each harvest is donated to local hot meal programs and food banks.
Our Market Garden grows seasonal produce in residential yards, community gardens we manage across Halton Region and our family farm near Orillia Ontario without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, using minimal tillage, and mostly bike-driven transportation. We grow a focused selection of vegetables which taste best fresh off the farm. With our model you’re able to enjoy our produce within a few days of harvest so they reach you at peak freshness and optimum flavour.
We’re primarily based in the area around Rock Chapel / Borer's Falls in Dundas north of Hamilton, with farm plots at our home, just outside of Waterdown, Burlington, and neighbours in Hamilton. Our delivery radius is about 10 km, so the farthest your food will travel is 25 kilometers – from the farthest plot to our home base and then back out again. Occasionally we'll harvest from our family property in Orillia Ontario but we try and save these veg for our teas over at Geekandtea.ca
We offer FREE delivery, on Wednesday evenings or Sundays. Most of the time we try to do bicycle delivery, but it will depend on how much produce is available, the weather and the willingness of our delivery husband since he works in greenhouse and barn construction.
Just need a fresh bag of spring mix or a couple pounds of tomatoes this week? No problem. If it’s in season, we’ll drop it off.
