Check out how our 2018 CSA ran below.
**Please email us at abundantacre[at]gmail.com to get the info about our 2019 CSA when it’s ready. Thanks!**
Be sure to check out the “About” page from the “CSA Vegetable Box” menu for a general overview of our CSA (including our 2018 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 2018 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 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 19 – Sept.4th (12 weeks)
Regular box: $21/week for 12 week season = $252
Large box: $28/week for 12 week season= $336
Autumn CSA Box:
September 18th – Oct.16 (We had to shorten our Autumn CSA this year – we had originally planned to go till end of November — due to Cara’s tendonitis in the summer, as we couldn’t plant or maintain as many crops for Autumn).
Regular box: $19/week for 5 week season = $95
Large box : $26/week for 5 week season = $130
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 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. 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 2018 CSA via email and you can look forward to some great eating down the road.
We look forward to growing vegetables for you this season!
