Abbotsford CSA sign up

Be sure to check out the “About” page from the “CSA Vegetable Box” menu for a general overview of our CSA (including our 2020 crop plan and pictures of previous boxes).

Thanks for reading this page with care. You should find all the details you need about our 2020 Abbotsford CSA Vegetable Boxes here.

Our 2020 CSA is now full. Please click on the CSA box for your city at our sign-up form and I’ll make sure you get the info for our 2021 CSA when it is ready (usually in winter).

Payment:

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:

Pick-up is on TUESDAYS, 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 bring a bag or box with you to bring your vegetables home in.

Summer CSA Box:

June 9th – Sept.8th

Regular box: $23/week for 14 week season = $322

Large box: $31/week for 14 week season = $434

Autumn CSA Box:

September 29 — sometime in November or December, depending on the weather *

*We’ll just be collecting payment till the end of October and then giving you an update as to how long our season can go beyond that, when we get near the end of October.

Payment due before Sept.29 Autumn box start:

Regular box: $23/week for 5 weeks = $115

Large box : $31/week for 5 weeks = $155

October 27 will be the next payment day for any boxes that we are able to do in November and December.

What if I forget to pick up my box? (missed box policy)

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 may feast on select vegetables from your box (like greens & cucumbers, which they really like).

How do I sign up?

Step #1: Fill out our 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. Please send the answer to your security question to us in a separate email. Thanks!

Cheques can be made out to Abundant Acre Family Farm and sent to:

42408 Adams Rd. Chilliwack BC, V2R 4K9

Step #3: Wait (& tell your friends). Once we get your deposit we will confirm your spot in our 2019 CSA via email and you can look forward to some great eating down the road.  It may take a few days for me to get your confirmation email sent out — thanks for your patience.

We look forward to growing vegetables for you this season!
