Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a pre-paid subscription to our farm's produce for a whole season. We deliver a weekly "Harvest Box" full of seasonal vegetables, berries, tree fruit, herbs, and eggs to convenient pick-up locations in Enderby and Vernon. Our Harvest Box CSA is the best way for you to get the freshest local produce direct.
Pick Up Locations:
FRIDAYS 4-7PM: Enderberry Farm, 64 Springbend Road, Enderby, BC
THURSDAYS 4-7PM: BX Neighbourhood, Blackcomb Way & Silver Star Road Vernon, BC
FRIDAYS 3 - 6PM: Salmon Arm - 3 Ave SE and 20 St SE.
SATURDAYS 8AM-1PM: Revelstoke - at the Revelstoke Farmers' Market
What's in the Harvest Box?
We will plant 35+ different types of vegetables, fruit and herbs to distribute to our members over the course of the season. Each week will include a variety of these seasonal vegetables and fruit - some will only appear in your box occasionally, while others will make a regular appearance.
How much does it cost?
The absolute value of your Harvest Box and the number of items in it will depend on the season. For example, your summer boxes will have a higher value than your spring boxes.
**JOIN NOW and the price of the Harvest Box is pro-rated to reflect the number of weeks remaining in the season.
The Full Share Harvest Box costs $500 ($25/week for 20weeks). This includes 8-14 different items.
The Half Share Harvest Box costs $300 ($15/week for 20weeks). This includes 6-8 different items.
You can pay at the start of the season or in instalments. A 25% deposit is required to sign up.
What is the Harvest Box CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between farmers and community members. CSA is a fantastic way for farmers to directly connect with their customers. When someone joins a CSA, they pay up front to become a member and receive a weekly share of the coming year’s harvest.
By paying up front, members help farmers by providing early season cash flow and a guaranteed market. Members benefit by receiving fresh, local and nutritious produce and connecting with where their food comes from and how it is grown.
Can I choose what produce I get in my box?
No. You will receive a wide variety of seasonal produce each week, and we will provide recipes and tips for using what you receive – after all part of the fun of joining a CSA is to discover and experiment with new vegetables and recipes!
At each pick up location we will provide a ‘swap box’. Each week we pack an extra box to allow members to swap out ONE item from their box for an item in the swap box, as we know not everyone is a fan of every vegetable we grow.
How do I Join & Pay?
Email Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org, to sign up. Once you have received confirmation, you will be asked to send a 25% non-refundable deposit to hold your spot. We also greatly appreciate, and accept, full payments with registration. If you need to pay in instalments, please contact Emily to make arrangements - email@example.com
There is a one time delivery fee for the Salmon Arm ($20), Vernon($35), and Revelstoke($50) members.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I GO ON VACATION?
We encourage you to find a friend, co-worker, or family member to pick up your box while you are away. We do not offer refunds or holds for boxes that you cannot pick up. Any boxes not picked up will be donated to the local food bank.

How and when do I pick up My Harvest Box?
When you sign up and become a member of the Harvest Box you will choose a pick up location:
- At our Farm in Enderby
- Salmon Arm
If you know that you will miss a pickup or be late, please call, text or email ahead of time so we can make alternative arrangements.
We transport your Harvest Box share in Rubbermaid bins, and ask that you bring reusable bags with you to pick up and transfer your produce into the bags.
We do not have the capacity to store CSA boxes or the free time to make arrangements with members to pick up their CSAs outside of the set pick up days.
What is your Refund Policy?
If a Harvest Box CSA member decides to cancel before the first pickup date, they will receive a full refund, minus the non-refundable 25% deposit.
Once the season has begun we cannot provide refunds unless there is someone on the waitlist who is willing to take it over.
