FOOD BOXES!!! RED CLAY CSA
Bringing Red Clay to Hali since 2015

Red Clay Boxes was conceived and piloted in 2015, as a way to bring fresh organics to Halifax, a market hungry for them in order to help support the farmers, artists and community projects that happen at the farm. The boxes were so well received we started plotting out new fields, greenhouses and planning our crop rotations to allow us to produce an abundance of food from July – October.  [more info]
