Community Supported Agriculture: Ontario Directory

This Canadian CSA farm directory lists Ontario Community Supported Agriculture farms (also known as Community Shared Agriculture farms), their locations, contact information and websites. All CSA farmers in Ontario can post their information on this directory, free of charge.

What are CSA farms? CSA farmers receive a set fee (from you - the consumer) prior to the start of the growing season. In return, you receive shares (produce) in the farm's bounty and you also share the risks due to weather and other factors beyond the control of the farmer.

With the prominence of issues such as global climate changes, the use of pesticides, fertilizers and genetic engineering is causing people to become more concerned with food safety.

CSA farms offer fresh, high quality vegetables (usually certified organic) with some farmers offering eggs, poultry, meat, herbs and honey. Each farm is different, but all offer fresher, healthier alternatives to produce picked too early and shipped for hundreds, even thousands of miles before making it to your plate. Taste the difference! Buy from your local CSA farm.
