Hartshare Veggie Box FAQ’s

We deliver to Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Stratford, New Hamburg, 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, you can expect plenty of fresh greens like arugula, spinach, lettuce, bok choi, and salad mix, plus root veggies from storage. Later on, we’ll also have beets, green onions, spring turnips, and radishes. And as summer progresses, the cucumbers, tomatoes, summer squash and sweet peppers get ready.

We try to have staples like potatoes, onions, and lettuce available throughout the entire season.

Yes.  The prices shown for our spring Hartshare veggie box options are for 16 wks of fresh, local vegetables. (16 deliveries for weekly shares and 8 deliveries of biweekly) There will be storage veggies as well as greens available once it gets too cold for the heat loving veg.

Delivery to K-W, Cambridge, and Stratford is included in all veggie box options.  If you live somewhere in between, contact us.

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 deliveries that you have paid for but not yet received.

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.

There are a few things we’ve changed to make our program better:

-Strawberries will no longer be included (due to quality issues) But we may have some kind of strawberry day instead, depending on interest.

-There will be a minimum order size so that you don’t end up with a ton of points at the end of the season. But you WILL still have the flexibility to order more veggies one week and less another week if you want.

-We’ve moved! Farm pickups in 2022 will be at 1659 Line 41, New Hamburg. It’s just a couple blocks away from our old location on line 37.

Eat well. Save time. Know the story behind your food.
