Do you want to know where your food comes from?

Do you want to know that you’re standing behind a local farmer? Be part of a farm community? Eat some really flavourful veggies (yes, you can taste the difference!)? And get inspired about your food again? If you said yes, then you’re gonna like our fall veggie box program (CSA)!!

We’re Linda and Kendra Danner,

Chief veggie growers and mother-daughter team here at Green Hart Farms.

Our goal is to serve our community by growing some seriously good food while building biodiversity in our farm ecosystem, creating opportunities for meaningful work, and setting an example of profitable, sustainable, small scale farming.

And we believe that everyone should have an opportunity to meet their farmer and know where their food comes from.

How Our Fall Veggie Box Program Works:

Ours is a Veggie Box/CSA program unlike any other! Did I mention that delivery to your door in K-W, Stratford, Cambridge, New Hamburg, and Baden is included in all share prices?? And you get to choose what comes in your cooler bag each week? Yes, we use cooler bags instead of boxes.

Sign Up.

Choose your share size (there are 3),

Choose your veggies. . .

Before each delivery, choose from what we’re harvesting. We won’t just give your a random bag of veggies!

Create that to-die-for dinner.

When your veggies arrive on your delivery day, unpack ’em and get cookin’. We’ll even help you out with inspiration via weekly emails and our fb group.

What we’re growing this fall (the veggie game plan)

Our fall Veggie Box Progam (CSA) will start off with the end of the summer veggies, then once it gets too cold for those, we’ll have fresh greens + roots and squash from storage.

Until the summer veggies die off. . .

Tomatoes (multiple types, but our cherry tomatoes look like they’ll die off early), peppers (hot and sweet), tomatillos, zucchini, beans, some eggplant, basil, chard, broccoli, leaf celery, possibly stalk celery (this is a trial crop), beets, lettuce, onions, garlic, sunflower shoots, pea shoots

Fall Veggies (Once summer veggies die off)

Winter squash (spaghetti, butternut), onions, beets, pea shoots, spinach, lettuce, bok choi, arugula, radishes, broccoli, kale, chinese cabbage (trial crop for us), chard,brussels sprouts (later), pea shoots, sunflower shoots Roots and squashes will be from storage

What we’re bringing in from other local farms:

Carrots, extra beets and onions, potatoes, apples (from Scotsview orchards), extra squashes, extra garlic, additional items as needed for variety. These will mostly be items from storage, esp after the first frost.

We’ve got a share size to fit your needs. . .

1 item= 1 bunch of radishes/ 1 quart of potatoes/ 1 pint of cherry tomatoes/ 1 large tomato. You get to choose what comes in your bag each week, so the number of items that you get will depend on what you order

Hartshare Veggie Box FAQ’s

We deliver to Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Stratford, New Hamburg, Wellesley, and Baden Ontario. Farm pickup is also available if you are not in our delivery areas. (Our farm is located just outside New Hamburg, Ont)

Not a problem! You absolutely can skip a week. Just let us know at least 1 week in advance (or 2, if possible). We’ll make sure that we have extra veggies for you in the future.

Alternately, you could arrange for a friend to take your veggies for a week. If your friend is in our delivery area, we could even deliver to their door. Just contact us ahead of time ( :

For the first few weeks in the spring, expect lots of greens supplemented with root veggies from storage. As the season gets underway, we’ll have fresh beets, turnips, and carrots with tops, and peas, followed by summer veggies such as cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers (peppers usually aren’t until late July/early August).

We always try to have a good mix to choose from.

We accept E-transfer as well as all major debit and credit cards on our website. If you would prefer to pay via cash or cheque, please contact us in advance. Please note that your veggie box membership will not be reserved until payment is received (either full payment or your first payment if you choose a payment plan).

Your veggies will arrive packed in an insulated cooler bag (except for your very last delivery day, when they will be packed in paper bags or cardboard boxes). So if you are just going to be away for a short time, they should be fine.

However, on a hot day or if you will be away more than 1 hour, just leave a cooler (or a rubbermaid tub with ice and a towel) out on your porch/by your door/ etc.  And add a note to your order letting the delivery folks know where it is (there’s a box for special notes on the checkout page).   Please note that we cannot be responsible for your share after it is delivered.

If you have to cancel your veggie box membership, please let us know 2 weeks in advance if possible. We can provide you with a refund for the delivery weeks that you have paid for but have not yet passed.

Unless there is complete devastation, the answer is yes. To reduce this risk, we also source from other local farmers. There won’t be the same variety to choose from, but we’ll make sure that you get something.
