Its more than just Vegetables!
- Reconnecting to the land where your local produce is grown. Build a relationship once again. Who is your farmer?
- We use organic sustainable farming methods to nurture the earth.
- You are helping create a stronger food security system.
By supporting Ossome Acres you may experience the following;
- Creativity in the kitchen with vibrant colour and unique varieties. (purple carrots!)
- In Season, fresh, flavorfull, vine ripended vegetables.

- A healthier lifestyle from consuming nutritious produce.
Our Season is 7 Months (30 weeks) and starts on the second week in May till the last week in November.
Our vegetable production runs on a bell curve which means during the peak of season there is more variety and abundance. Members will receive a larger quantity of produce during that time.
- July, August and September will be valued at $25 each week.
- May, June, October and November will be valued at $20 each week.
We Deliver to your door in the Chilliwack Area and have pick up available at the New West Farmer's Market. and a Riley park (West Vancouver)
Program length may vary for members picking up at the Farmers Markets
- Royal City 20 weeks
- Riley park 16 weeks

Our Harvest box has two delivery options weekly or biweekly. A weekly box is suitable for a family or a couple. A bi-weekly box is great for seniors or a single person. All is relative to the amount of vegetables consumed.
Communication throughout the season with CSA members will be through our email newsletter. We will post recipes and tips on how to store and prepare the wide range of vegetables you will receive along with photos, volunteer opportunities, and upcoming events: such as our annual CSA Social and tour.
