CSA Basket Subscription - Ottawa Farm Fresh Organics
This year our Winter CSA is going longer than ever. We've made the investments in infrastructure necessary to make it happen. A larger cold room, a heated pick up area, and expanded crop plantings are all coming together to make the 2023/24 Winter CSA longer than ever.
We're closing the circle and helping you eat local longer than ever!

The veggies you'll find in your Winter CSA will change as the season progresses.
Early on your basket might not differ greatly from summer options, depending on how mother nature treats us, then slowly shifting towards more comforting winter fare, such as roots and hearty greens. As the seasons transition and we move into early spring you can expect more frost kissed greens as the earth begins to burst back into life!
This is what eating local year round looks like - a menu that slowly shifts and provides us with just what our body wants and needs every step of the way.
Here are a few of the delicious winter vegetables that you'll find in your Winter CSA basket over the course of the season.
Roots (carrots, beets, daikon radish, potatoes, garlic)
Cabbage/squash/celeriac/celery/sweet potaotes/parsnips/celery root
Large greens (kale/chard/lettuce/raddichio/herb)
Cut greens (arugula/spinach/baby kale/mesclun mix)
Surprise items (canned goods/herbal teas/bulk foods/lacto-ferments/etc.)
Flexible Payment Options: Choose between paying in one instalment, or three equal instalments - the first paid upon registration followed by two subsequent payments on November 1, 2023 and March 1, 2024. A $20 admin charge applies to each instalment payment. You will receive an invoice for each of the subsequent payments from email@example.com with a link to enter your card information.
What our members say about our CSA baskets
"This week was the last winter CSA pickup from Ottawa Farm Fresh. We got salad mix!! What is this wizardry? I am skiing and 5km away they are growing salad mix! Needless to say we are switching our summer CSA to these guys."

PLEASE NOTE: We are having an issue with the website and you might find that once you go to the checkout page you are only being charged for a single basket in your chosen size. The easiest way to correct this is to increase the quantity in your cart from '1' to the number of basket you would like, ie. 20 for the full Winter season.
Alternatively, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your CSA details (size, number of vacation weeks, and payment schedule) and we can send you an invoice. Thank you for your patience while we correct this issue.
