In Metchosin, farmers have teamed up to sell their products directly to consumers through a Community Supported Agriculture model. The box features vegetables from Wind Whipped Farm, meat from Parry Bay Sheep Farm & Stillmeadow Farm and eggs from Winter Creek Farm and SRS Farm. Membership is purchased ahead of time for the season, and consumers can pick up their produce weekly at one of three locations around the city.

The Local Food Box is only available seasonally from June to September so vegetables are delivered from fields to your kitchen when they are fresh and in season. Check out the 2014 product list!
