This CSA farm directory lists Manitoba Community Supported Agriculture farms (also known as Community Shared Agriculture farms), their locations, contact information and websites. All CSA farmers in Manitoba can post their information on this directory, free of charge.
What are CSA farms? A CSA farm brings together farmers and people in neighboring communities into a mutually beneficial and direct relationship. CSA farmers receive a pre-determined fee from you, the consumer, before the start of the growing season. In return, you receive shares in the farm’s bounty, usually in the form of a weekly box of produce. Paying up front means you also share the risks due to weather and other factors beyond the control of the farmer.
CSA farms offer fresh, local, high quality produce (usually sustainably grown) with some farmers offering eggs, poultry, meat, herbs and honey.
Membership in a CSA creates relationships between people and the food they eat, the land on which it is grown and those who grow it. This supportive relationship helps to create an economically stable farm operation. The members receive high quality produce, often at below retail prices. In return, farmers are guaranteed a reliable market for a diverse selection of crops. This allows farmers to ensure proper land stewardship practices in order for the soil to be healthy for generations to come.
