GROWN IN THE HEART OF ADDINGTON.

COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE

- weekly vege bags -

Our produce is sold using a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programme. CSA is subscription method for getting your weekly veges directly from the farm. No more middle people.

We love growing great kai and when people sign up for our CSA it gives us the security and support to plan ahead. It allows us to focus on growing great veges instead of worrying about weekly sales.

By purchasing a share, you’re forging a relationship with the Addington Farm and becoming a direct supporter of our mahi to bring more good into our neighbourhood. In exchange for committing to a seasonal share we are committed to providing you nourishing and delicious vegetables each week for 3 months.

If you’re keen to know more and hear when our CSA signups open for the new season, Get in touch.  Drop us an email at hello@addington.farm or contact our manager on 027 2211 001

DETAILS & FAQ

DATES:
WINTER CSA – This runs for 12 weeks starting from the 29th of May. Sign ups open on the 15th of May. 

SPRING CSA – This runs for 14 weeks starting from the 21st of August.  Sign-ups open on the 6th of August.  

WHAT IF I’M GOING AWAY ON HOLIDAY? – We will not charge you for the weeks you are away. You will need to provide 2 weeks’ notice if you are going away so that we can plan our harvests/planting accordingly. 

BILLING?  – It helps us to receive just 1 payment in advance for the whole 12 week season. This allows us to focus our energy on growing & harvesting instead of monitoring late payments.   If it’s not feasible for you to pay the bill in advance get in contact to arrange multiple payments. A commitment to the full period is recommended in order for us to plan our crops accordingly.

WHAT IF I NEED TO WITHDRAW MID SEASON? If you need to withdraw during the season, you can do so by giving three weeks notice so that we have time to fill your spot.  We will refund the remaining weeks that you have paid for.

WHAT IF THE FARM HAS A CROP FAILURE? If the farm has a major crop failure due to extreme weather, pest or disease there could be a reduction of veges in the CSA shares each week. We plan and utilize vege growing systems to minimize this risk.

WHAT IF THE FARM MANAGER IS UNABLE TO WORK? The Addington Farm is a very small organization. If the farm manager was unable to work due to sickness there would be no veges available for that week. The farm would replace that lost week of veges at the end of the CSA season by providing an extra week of produce. 

“I get a weekly veggie bag from the farm and there’s such a great variety in them! I love knowing its been grown just around the corner, and that the team work hard in such a cool urban farm! It’s great to support local, the bags are really value for money and I’ve got to try crops I’d not find in the supermarket too.”

“When I buy from a supermarket I don’t know who grew it, where they grew it or how they grew it. I’m connected to the farm tho. It’s about as local as I can get without growing veges on my own patio. 

Some of my friends will rush off to the supermarket every night – they don’t know what they are going to have for dinner almost every day. The vege bag has helped me get some more control of my life. I love taking time out to enjoy cooking. It creates a natural routine to the day. It’s cathartic and creates a happy rhythm.”
