The Weekly Veggie Delivery from Your Local Farmers.

Registration is open!!!

First 2024 deliveries start in May.

Imagine opening your door to a bag packed full of fresh, tasty veggies. . .

And knowing that they were grown with care by your farmer. Following their growth throughout the season. Knowing that you are standing behind a local farm, and that your food $$ are going right back into our community.

Your food becomes more meaningful when you know the story behind it. If you believe this too, then we want you in our tribe : )

How It Works:

When you join our veggie box program, you are making a commitment to yourself to eat fresh, healthy, locally grown veggies. Now that’s something that you can feel good about. Here’s how it works:

1.

Sign Up.

Purchase a veggie box membership before the growing season begins.

2.

We Grow Your Veggies.

You’ll be able to watch as we plant, care for, and harvest your veggies via our weekly farm email updates. (Starting in March)

3.

Enjoy!

Get ready to turn those veggies into something delicious when your first delivery arrives in May.

What’s Included in a Veggie Box Membership?

  • 16 weekly or 8 biweekly deliveries of fresh, tasty 100% locally grown veggies– all the veggies are either from our farm, or from another local farmer so you are getting some of the freshest produce available AND supporting our community
  • The ability to choose your veggies– Each week, you’ll be able to choose your veggies from what we have available. So no kale if you don’t want any!
  • Delivery to your door- in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Stratford,New Hamburg and Baden. Save time and cut down on carbon emissions.
  • Weekly farm updates so that you can watch your veggies grow.
  • Access to our Members-only fb group and other resources- we’ll help you turn those veggies into delicious meals!
  • Access to returning member discounts

Choose Your Share Size.

We’ve got 3 veggie box size options to fit your needs. . Budget friendly payment plans are available on the product page-so you don’t have to pay all at once. Note: Due to rising costs (partly carbon tax), we’ve had to slightly increase the prices of our shares.

Delivery days

First Spring 2024 deliveries are planned for the week of May 20, 2024. Some Biweekly shares will start on week 2. We may have to delay first deliveries by 1 week if it’s too cold. Either way, we’ll run for 16 weeks.

  • K-W: Wednesday late mornings/afternoons
  • Cambridge/Stratford/New Hamburg/Baden: Thursday afternoons/ evenings
  • Farm pickup: Thursday evenings from 4-7pm

It’s more than just a veggie delivery. . .

When you join our veggie box program, you

  • Support local and keep your food $$ in our community
  • Make a commitment to yourself to eat healthy (you won’t want to throw out those veggies!)
  • Have the opportunity to know the story behind your food.
  • Help your kids develop healthy eating habits
  • Get to try new things (purple kohlrabi, anyone?)
  • Taste the difference! Our veggies have flavour!

Who’s it for???

Our veggie box program is a great way to eat healthy and get connected to your food. . .but it’s not for everyone. . .

This is for you if. . .

  • You value a relationship with your farmers, and you care about where your food comes from.
  • You’re willing to learn to eat with the seasons (don’t worry- we’ll help you with recipe ideas and menu planning tips) There are going to be lots of greens in the spring, followed by fresh root veggies, then summer veggies in the summer. You won’t get tomatoes in May, or radishes in late July.
  • You value fresh, flavourful ingredients– frankly if you just want the ‘best deal’ on tomatoes, you are better off shopping at Walmart or No Frills. Our membership is just as much about the experience as the produce. Oh, and our veggies have real flavour, too : )
  • You are open to trying new veggies and over all being adventurous in the kitchen. (Spanish Radishes, anyone?)
  • You have a bit of time for menu planning and food prep (If you normally eat out all of the time, this might not be the best fit for you)
  • You are not going to be away for more than 4 weeks over the summer.

This is NOT for you if. . .

  • It doesn’t matter where your food comes from, as long as it’s there.
  • You don’t want to adjust to eating what’s in season. You couldn’t live without tomatoes in May and arugula in August.
  • You are just looking for cheap.
  • You are not into switching it up with new recipes and trying new foods. If you are just a ‘meat and potatoes’ type of person and you just want to stick with what you know, then this probably isn’t for you.
  • You have absolutely no time for menu planning and food prep. By nature, veggies take a bit of time to prep even if you are just making salads for the week.
  • You are going to be away a lot this spring/summer.
  • You are looking for a bulk deal– If you are wanting lots of veggies for canning/freezing, contact us about canning volumes instead.

Green Hart Farm Veggie Share was a great success. Fresh local farm grown vegetables delivered weekly improved our health. It saved us time, money, and gas( driving to markets). My variety of vegetables intake improved, as did the creative ways of preparing them. Thank you for the storage, freezing hints, and the recipes. Kendra is friendly, knowledgeable, and a delight. Her passion for healthy living, natural farming techniques, and a love for mother earth has made me even more committed to continuing this practice for future years. Barb who delivers the fresh vegetables has become my friend. Thank you for the opportunity to grow with your farm vision and feed my family healthy, fresh, delicious food.

Absolutely loved the fact we received super fresh produce, with hints on cooking or recipes. We ate foods we had never seen at the grocery store. The online shopping and points system work great. An excellent experience and we will be signing up for this Spring.

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.

We do have some terms and conditions to keep us all on the same page. Please read them carefully before you sign up. Here they are:

I agree to the following terms and conditions of Green Hart Farms’ Veggie Box Program (CSA):

  • I understand that all important veggie box information and farm updates will be sent via email to the email address I have provided. It is my responsibility to read these emails (and to check my spam/junk/promos tab then notify Green Hart Farms if I have not been receiving them).
  • I understand that I will need to place a veggie order within the ordering window for my area before each veggie delivery. Otherwise I will not receive veggies that week. (You will receive detailed instructions on placing your veggie order prior to the first week- it’s not hard). If I have trouble placing my order, I’ll contact my farmers for help. When placing my veggie order, I am aware that higher demand items will ‘sell out’. (Although there will always be other produce available during the ordering window)
  • I recognise that my account on Green Hart Farms’ website will be loaded with points to use for veggies prior to the first veggie delivery of the season, and that all left over points expire after the final Spring/Summer delivery in September, UNLESS I choose to purchase a Fall membership if available, in which case my points will be added on to the fall. It is my responsibility to use up my points. All Fall points expire after the final delivery week in November.
  • I recognise that Green Hart Farms cannot be responsible for my veggies after they are delivered.
  • I understand that if I choose the payment plan option, my credit card will be automatically billed on or just before the payment due dates. Payment plans are 5% more than paying in full up front to cover payment processing fees and software.
  • When joining this Veggie Box Program, I agree to accept the fact that with natural systems, there can never be guarantees, and I accept that risk. This may involve a delayed start to the season, or less variety of produce available. Or in extreme cases, a total wipe out of crops resulting in produce being brought in from other farms if possible. I recognise that some of the items on the projected harvest chart/list of produce may not be available to the above or other circumstances, and that some harvests may occur earlier or later than planned.
  • If any of the veggies received in my delivery have quality issues, I will contact my farmers within 24 hours so that credit can be applied to my account for that item. Should I be dissatisfied with my experience as a whole, I will communicate that to my farmers so that they can try to address it. If I am still not satisfied, I will contact Green Hart Farms again to arrange a refund on a pro-rated basis. I recognise that refunds will NOT be given for delivery weeks that have already passed, regardless of whether or not I have ordered vegetables for those weeks- Unless there have been quality issues, issues with delivery, or software issues making it difficult to order that I have notified my farmers about.
  • Should I need to cancel my membership, I’ll notify Green Hart Farms two weeks in advance if possible. I recognise that:
    • Refunds will NOT be given for delivery weeks that have already passed regardless of whether or not I have ordered veggies for those weeks. If I have used more points than the total that would be allotted to the weeks I have ordered, my refund will be reduced accordingly, however I will not be refunded for points that should have been used.
    • There is a $20 cancellation fee for memberships cancelled after deliveries have begun. (With exception to cancellations due to extreme circumstances)
  • I understand that the cooler bag my veggie delivery comes in remain property of Green Hart Farms, and agree to put them out for the delivery driver to pick up when he/she comes with my next delivery or otherwise ensure that they are returned to the farm. I am responsible for making sure these bags are returned. There is a $15 fee for each non-returned bag. (These bags are custom printed and can take a long time from when we order them to when we get them).
