We will be offering “add-ons” throughout the season – additional food items which we will source from other local food producers. Some of the add-ons may include: honey, fresh herbs, mushrooms, jams, and canned fruits and vegetables.

Ideal for a single person, couple or small family.

Content: 7-10 seasonal crops.
Cost: $475 ($28 per week).
Methods of payment: Cash, Cheque or Credit. Full payment of $475 at the beginning of season or two instalments of $237.50.
