Send an email to abundantacre(at)gmail.com with ‘2018 CSA interest‘ in the subject line and we’ll let you know when our 2018 CSA Vegetable box details are ready (we’ll publish these in February 2018).
**********************Below are details from our 2017 season.********************
Be sure to check out the “About” page from the “CSA Vegetable Box” menu for a general overview of our CSA (including our 2017 crop plan).
Thanks for reading this page with care – there are a few changes from past years. You should find all the details you need about our 2017 Abbotsford CSA Vegetable Boxes here.
Payment for the entire CSA Box season is due when you come to pick-up your first box. We collect payment on the first Summer box pick-up and the first Autumn box pick-up. You have the option to sign up for both seasons or just one (subject to spots available).
Please contact us if you can’t pay for the whole season at once and need to discuss other payment options.
On the first box day, please tell us about any pick-up days that you will be away; you will not have to pay for those boxes in your lump-sum.
If other vacation/work plans come up after you’ve made your payment and you can’t get a friend or family member to pick up your box for you, please contact us up to 24 hours before the scheduled pick-up. We can cancel your box for the day you’ll be away and give you a credit toward vegetables at our market booth or towards a future box (i.e. in the Autumn season).
Pick-up is on MONDAYS, from 4:30pm-6 pm, outside, at the back of the south side of the House of James bookstore at 2743 Emerson St., Abbotsford.
Please note that our CSA box runs as normal on all holiday Mondays except Oct.9, Thanksgiving Monday – no box on this day.
Please bring a bag or box with you to bring your vegetables home in.
Summer CSA Box: May 29 – September 4th (15 weeks)
Regular box: $21/week for 15 week season = $315
Large box: $28/week for 15 week season= $420
Autumn CSA Box: September 11th – end of November (7-8 possible weeks)
We WILL NOT run a box on Sept.18, Thanksgiving Day (Oct.9), or Oct.23rd.
Regular box: $19/week for 8 week season = $152
Large box : $26/week for 8 week season = $208
What if I forget to pick up my box?
We send out a reminder email the morning of a box pick-up day to help you remember but will not issue a refund if you miss picking up your box during the allotted times.
Thank you for understanding that, due to time constraints, we are unable to accommodate making alternate pick-up arrangements for unclaimed boxes. Your box will be given to someone, consumed by our family or other farm helpers, or in the height of the season, our hens or hogs may feast on select vegetables from your box (like greens & cucumbers, which they really like).
How do I sign up?
Step #1: Please use our online sign-up form. If you are planning on sharing a box with a friend, you’ll need their contact information handy as well.
Step #2: Please complete your registration with us by sending your non-refundable $30 deposit by either e-transfer or cheque. The deposit will be subtracted from the payment due at your first CSA box pick-up.
Email money transfers can be sent to abundantacre(at)gmail.com. Thank you for using a security question you know we can answer with ease.
Cheques can be made out to Abundant Acre Family Farm and sent to:
42408 Adams Rd. Chilliwack BC, V2R 4K9
Step #3: Once we get your deposit we will confirm your spot in our 2017 CSA via email and you can look forward to some great eating down the road.
We look forward to partnering with you this season!
