Winter Grain CSA

Winter Grain CSA

Our CSA is designed to help support farmers by making the very best use of what is locally grown and available here in Manitoba. It is a collection of grains, seeds, and pulses grown on Organic farms around the province, and processed/milled on farm to minimize the carbon footprint of transportation. All the items in the CSA shares are certified organic, and in addition, many are products that otherwise would become “on-farm food waste” (downgraded to animal feed or discarded) because of the lack of processing available here in the province.

Two basic shares are available – the regular CSA includes some gluten-containing products like ancient grain flours. Our gluten-free shares are safe for those with celiacs or other gluten intolerances.

In each of these 2 categories, there are 3 sizes. Our regular share will be approximately 75lbs and 17 different types of grain.

Half shares include all 17 grain types, but half the weight.

Gigantic shares are double (but less than double the price…we love to see people loaded up with local grain to last the whole-year-round!)

What quantity is right for you? Really hard to say…some people found that a half share is nice for individuals or a couple, especially if you don’t do a lot of cooking, but we also know individuals who purchased a gigantic share in 2019 and are running low. I have listed the approximate quantities of each item to help you make the decision that is best for your family.

  • Just enjoyed my first bowl of ‘naked’ oats for night snack (having missed supper after a large and varied brunch with friends). I made it before i read your instructions, but must have got it right because it is wonderful. Creamy and grainy at the same time. Where can I buy these oats? My night snack came courtesy of Jennifer Nikkel, who has some connections over there. Thanks. Awesome stuff. Glad to see a new generation of farmers like you.

  • And now that I’ve read the rest of the info on your website here, I also know where I can buy them! Thanks.

  • Hi George – thanks for bringing this to my attention. I will work on changing the format for the image gallery tomorrow morning…my apologies for any inconvenience!

  • I tried your energy bites at Sobeys last weekend. They were so delishous ! I purchased your oats and made the bites tonight. They are a hit in the family! Hubby says they remind him of eat more bars . We will be trying some more recipes and enjoy the fact that your products are organic! Awesome!

  • Thanks for getting in touch Eileen – i’m glad you enjoyed the energy bites! Did you follow the recipe ‘as is’ or did you make any modifications? I’m always interested in new variations, substitutions, etc.

  • Hi There….trying to find the steel cut naked oat recipe i sampled at the grocery store. I remember you toasted the grain first. Do you have this recipe….i think you called it a “salad”….served cold with veggies.

  • So sorry about that – somehow my photo and link to that recipe was deleted. I think I’ve got it back up on the recipe page, and the direct link to is it Thanks for pointing this out, and enjoy!
