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.
