2013 CSA List

For an updated list of CSA’s in NS, see our most recently updated blog post!

In reviewing last year’s blog stats, the most popular post, by far, was the 2012 CSA list, suggesting that many of you are hungry for information on CSAs.  Well, it’s time for me to update that list for the 2013 season.  As always, please let me know if there are any errors or omissions in the list and I’ll correct them as quickly as I can.

What is a CSA or Community supported Agriculture? Read about it here. Curious if a CSA is right for you? Here’s an article about the pros and cons.  Ready to sign up?  Here are some links to some great CSA farms and other community supported food businesses around Nova Scotia.  (A few CSAs have neither a website nor a facebook page, in which case, I’ve linked to their email address.):

  1. Hi there, you have us (Cochrane Family Farm) showing numerous drop off locations but they are not the correct ones. We do deliveries to Brookfield, Truro, and Musquodoboit, plus farm pickup. thank you

  2. Hello, I’m starting a vegetable CSA this year on my family farm. Search Emily teBogt’s Produce on facebook or call 670-3408 or email etproduce@gmail.com, pick up is at the farm in Grand Pre (near Wolfville).

  3. This isn’t CSA precisely, but Home Grown Organic Foods (www.hgof.ns.ca) has both home delivery and vegetables/fruit/meat/breads/etc.

  4. Is there an Avon River CSA? We’re looking for one since our CSA Jody moved to good ole CB! Can anyone recommend one that we wouldn’t have to drive too far to pick up?

  5. Hi Marla!
    Do you know of any CSA’s for veg OR meat that deliver in the Yarmouth area? I scoured your list, but didn’t see any. So sorry if there is one listed and I missed it, that does tend to happen 😉
