GROWN IN THE HEART OF ADDINGTON
COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
Our produce is sold using a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programme.
CSA creates a direct relationship between farmers and the community. The middle man is removed.
The community supports their local farmer by committing to purchasing a share of vegetables for a whole season. This allows the farmer to focus their energy on growing great produce 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 commiting to a seasonal share we are committed to providing you nourishing and delicious vegetables each week for 12 weeks.
Our Winter CSA sold out fast! sorry if you missed out. The Spring CSA starts on the 28th of July and runs for 12 weeks. There will be limited shares available. You can apply to get onto the waitlist for the Spring CSA thru this form.
Existing CSA shareholders who live locally will be given preference during the sign up process. We do this to support the underlying values of the local food movement.

BILLING. It helps us to receive just 1 payment in advance for the whole 12 week season. This allow’s us to focus our energy on growing & harvesting instead of monitoring late payments. We will send out 1 invoice for the 3 month subscription. If it’s not feasible for you to pay the bill in advance get in contact to arrange multiple payments.
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. Either you can donate your share, or we can refund the remaining weeks that you have paid for

Financial support from our seasonal CSA is our main financial income. By signing up you are directly supporting us to continue bringing more good into our hood. In exchange for your commitment we supply you fresh locally grown veges!
“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.”
“We love the idea of buying produce from a farmers market. But when we’re too busy and tired chasing 3 kids all week the last thing we want to do is drag them round a market all Saturday morning.
It’s so easy to get produce from the Addington Farm when it gets delivered every Wednesday morning.
The micro greens are a real bonus each week too! It’s a little bit posh when your on a budget. We don’t have the time or space to grow them so its great to get them from the farm.”
