Graeme and Theresa Buys have been farming full-time for almost a decade near Niverville, MB. Buys Home Farm is a small mixed farm which produces loads of seasonal vegetables as well as chicken, pork, beef, lamb, and sometimes duck and turkey.

Dana and Gregory are passionate about providing quality food, especially vegetables, to people who are seeking fresh local goods. The farm is not certified organic, but does not use any sprays or genetically modified seed, and strives to make sure the land is cared for with a long term perspective.
The CSA will run for 13 consecutive weeks in 2017, beginning at the end of June. There will be pickup points in Winnipeg (Norwood, West Broadway, South Winnipeg, and Scotia are penciled in), in Niverville, and on the farm.

Casi Cielo Farm
Year 2 of my Community Supported Agriculture project for my micro Urban Farm, called Casi Cielo or Almost Heaven for 2014. I have a small house on a big yard in Norwood/St. Boniface where I am living out the principle of grow food, not lawns and working to make it all an edible landscape. Last year was an incredible learning experience which I hope the 7 families who participated found fun and nourishing!
Since my “farm” is quite small, my plan is to offer a crate of fresh, organic (not certified) , locally grown fruit and vegetables on a weekly basis starting in mid- June until the end of September for a total of 14 weeks. I may take a break of a few weeks in July if we have a stall in growth like last year, but will “beef” up any slow weeks with baking and preserves.
This year, a full family share in the Casi Cielo project will $325.00 or $23.21 per week. The food will be fresh, full of nutrients and hand picked. There is risk in any farming or gardening venture, but I will aim ensure a good quantity, with high quality food throughout the season. Peter Rabbit and our dear Emily ensures that we have well naturally fertilized soil that is augmented by compost. Amounts and types of produce will vary with the seasons, and the weather conditions.

For us, sustainability means farming with nature, rather than against it. This means many things. Avoiding synthetic fertilizers and pesticides is a good place to start. Somewhere along the road to sustainability we also have to learn to live on the sunlight given to us each year rather than the ancient sunlight stored in fossil fuels. We rely on a lot of human-power to produce our food and are experimenting with animal power but still have a long way to go before retiring the tractor. The challenge and joy of eating with the seasons is one we’re delighted to share with CSA members.

She is motivated to sustain farm families and communities by growing whole foods and by caring for the systems in which food and families grow.
