The Weekly Basket Program
The weekly basket program, also known as a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), is a 6, 12 or 18 week subscription for the adventurous, pleasure-seeking food enthusiast, whether you're a seasoned chef or just beginning to explore.
Each week you'll receive a basket of clean, freshly-picked herbs and vegetables, all grown without the use of pesticides or harsh chemicals. Included with every basket is a recipe idea using some of its contents.
This program takes the guesswork out of what to cook every week, saving you time in the produce section of the grocery store and exposing you to special varieties of staple herbs and vegetables that are rarely grown at a commercial scale.
And the best part? By joining a CSA you are building a relationship with the people that grow your food, investing in your well-being, building your community, supporting your local economy and contributing to the health of your local environment.

What's In a Basket ?
Every basket contains some greens and herbs. Beyond that, we strive for the best variety of in-season produce we can offer you. The quantity of a basket can comfortably feed 2-4 people. To get a better picture of the quantity and variety, have a look at what was provided in 2017.
WHAT MEMBERS SAY
“Being part of the Little Victory CSA was a tremendous experience. We had no idea what to expect but from our first encounter to the end of the growing season, it was a delight! The vegetables were varied and delicious. It was a great way to engage directly with local organic farmers. The extra touches - the bag, the weekly emails, the recipes, the jelly and the thank you note - made it really special. And best of all, meeting Tara and Debi, who are an absolute joy. I would highly recommend this CSA to all my friends and neighbours!”
— Frank N., CSA Member 2017
The Fine Print
We ask that all payments be made by May 31st, 2018 to secure your spot in our CSA. For 18 and 12 week subscriptions, you can pay in two instalments if you prefer.
As a member of our weekly basket program, you're required to pick-up your basket each week at the designated location and timeframe you select on the registration form.
If you're not able to pick-up your basket, you can make arrangements to have someone else pick-it up for you at the designated location and timeframe. Baskets that are not picked up within the designated timeframe will be donated to a family in need.
Growing without the use of pesticides and harsh chemicals means that the odd critter may nibble on or hide out in the produce. While this is a part of nature, we get that it can be an unpleasant surprise and try our very hardest to thoroughly clean our produce each week. If you have any issues, please don't hesitate to talk to us. We love hearing your feedback.
A fundamental component of the CSA concept is sharing the risk that is involved in working with nature with the farmers that do all they can to minimize it; risks that can result in crop failures or lower yields.
That said, we understand it can be uncomfortable to dish out a large chunk of change upfront.
For this reason, every subscription has a non-refundable $60 deposit. If you're not satisfied or your summer plans change within the first 14 days of your subscription, we will refund you the remaining balance paid and gravely mourn your departure.
