Forman Farms CSA
A weekly harvest of our finest, fresh, seasonal produce from our fields to your table!
The Forman Farms CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program offers members a share in our finest, fresh produce throughout the growing season in exchange for purchasing a membership at the beginning of the year. As a twist on the traditional weekly CSA box program where we would select what you get and when, our CSA offers members greater flexibility as well as choice.
From the beginning of June to the end of October you come to our stand at the Kingston Farmer's Market any day of the week (Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday) and pick out what items you would like in your Market CSA that week. From our popular greenhouse tomatoes to a great variety of field vegetables and fruits from our berry patch, you can use up your membership however, and whenever you would like!
Please note, that our Market stand operates on a first come first serve basis so if you want the best selection of produce we recommend you get there before noon. We may be at the market prior to June 1st selling items but they are cash and carry only, means they cannot be used towards the Market CSA, as it does not start until June 1st.
Not Interested In The Market CSA?
We will still be offering the traditional CSA weekly (or bi-weekly) box for pick-up at the farm only on Thursdays after 4pm. It consists of a box of food once a week for 20 weeks (or 10 weeks) from June-October. The cost is $600 or $300 for the bi-weekly pick-up.
Everything you get in your share, comes from our farm! From our greenhouse tomatoes, to a great variety of field vegetables- raspberries and melons- Hallowe'en and pie pumpkins- ornamental and edible corn- and even cut flowers- we grow it all, and are excited to share with you throughout the season what we produce. Click here for samples of what you might find us featuring at our market stand during different times of the year.
Tomatoes all season long! Spring to late Fall, you can choose a basket of our popular greenhouse beefsteak tomatoes, colourful cherry tomatoes or our unique heirloom varieties at times of the year when you normally can't find them locally.
A 10% discount to our Garden Centre! Membership with our CSA, gives you more than food. You will also receive a membership to our Garden Centre where you can find all the annuals, perennials, and shrubs you need and receive a 10% discount.
More choice and more flexibility! With our Market CSA structure, you get to choose what you want in your weekly share, and when! This means you won't get overloaded with heads of cabbage and bunches of kale when you would rather have some fresh cherry tomatoes or delicious snap peas instead!
Periodic Updates and Recipes! We are always happy to share with our customers what we do and how we do it, as a member of our CSA you will get weekly email updates from on the farm as well as a list of what to expect at the market stand that week. We will even include a great recipe or two!
