We have heard from many of you and we appreciate your support and wish you all well! During these unprecedented times, some changes may be implemented for Veggie Box member pick ups. We will know more closer to the start date of June 4, 2020. Our team is discussing options including scheduled safe pickups and front-porch deliveries. Please know we are in full operation and keeping very safe on our farm to ensure you have fresh, organic safe food for the 2020 season. We will continue to communicate any changes as we know them. Stay safe ~ Mingle Hill family
Farm Box Memberships are a team effort
Based on the CSA outline (Community Supported Agriculture), Farmers and Buyers (Partners) work together as a team. The partners purchase the season's worth of veggies at the beginning of the season which the farmer uses to buy seed, equipment, compost and anything we need to plant and grow your food. The basis is to support growing locally grown food and you benefit by receiving the best of the bounty each week.
Here at Mingle Hill Farms, we only grow organically. We have 10 years of organic growing experience. Previously certified from 2008 to 2012 for growing organic sunflowers, we have now become Certified Organic for our vegetables and lavender. With organic growing, you know that all the produce you receive will be free of herbicides and pesticides, and safe for you and your family to enjoy.
Pick Up Locations
Pick-up will be available at the farm from Thursday 3pm until Saturday at 4pm. Or You will be able to pick up your box at the Welland Farmer's Market every Saturday from 7AM-11AM.
What?? WE DELIVER! We want to make your life easier. For an additional $7 per week, we can deliver to your door. If you get 5 neighbours or people at your office, we will waive the delivery fee! We can deliver to Grimsby, Smithville and Beamsville. We will do our best to deliver at your convenience. Please be advised that after deliver, we cannot ensure the produce will be to the best quality if left out for a length of time.
Our boxes are $500 per year. This is 19 weeks of our best, freshly picked vegetables packaged for you each week. You can write a cheque, we always except cash, or you can e-transfer to our email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Going on Vacation?
Going on vacation? Good for you! We would love to be able to give you that extra box when you return, however, all our planting is already done and even though I tell the plants to slow down, they do not listen. We would love to supply your box that week to one of your friends or family members. If all your friends and family are going on vacation with you (why didn't you invite us?), we would be happy to donate it to the West Lincoln Community Care or Village of Hope on your behalf.
All the boring stuff
Each week, we will be delivering you a box carefully packed with your farm fresh veggies. Each week when you pick up your new full farm box, we request that you return last week's empty box. If you do not return a box during the season, you will be subject for a $20 replacement fee for the lost box. All of the above is an agreement with the Farmer (Mingle Hill Farms) and the Partners (you) in supporting the fresh local food movement and enjoying the best of the bounty.
