The Red Clay Food Box CSA
Red Clay Boxes were conceived and piloted in 2015, as a way to bring fresh organics to a market hungry for them and to help support the farmers and community projects that happen at Red Clay. Red Clay food boxes come in two sizes, Fox boxes and Bear boxes.
What is the Red Clay Food Box CSA?
Fresh garden vegetables and fruit if available, tending to favour the season such as salad greens, herbs, beet greens and peas etc early to carrots, squash, potatoes apples etc later
The Red Clay ethic is to produce our vegetables organically, using balanced garden techniques without chemical pesticides and to harvest and deliver as close to harvest as possible.
A weekly newsletter tells the story of the farm is sent to let you know what is in store for the next food box and the successes and challenges of producing your food.
Every once in a while we’ll sneak a surprise into your box. It might be a jar of fresh jam or a cup of blueberries.
A handmade wooden box at the end of the program for all full-season subscribers.
Other farm produce is available each week including free range eggs, unpasteurized honey and a few other goodies that we will tell you about later.
How will we distribute the Red Clay Boxes.
The main pick-up location will be determined soon. We hope to have the pick-up time on a weekday so you can see what is in the box before market day.
Other drop-off locations will be decided once we have all our subscriptions in place. Ideally, we will have 2-3 other drop locations. If you want to be a drop location let us know.
How much does it cost and how to pay?
A limited number of shares are available.
Email money transfer to: email@example.com is our preferred method of payment.
Alternately you can purchase using your debit or credit through paypal by clicking on the subscription you wish to purchase.

We also offer 12-week subscriptions for those who think they’ll be on holiday for part of the season. When you purchase a 12 week CSA, you can schedule your boxes so that when you are away, we won’t deliver to an empty home. You’ll have to notify us at least 2 weeks in advance when you won’t be able to accept a delivery so that we can plan our harvest. Prices for 12 week subscription are:
Fox boxes $250.00
Bear Boxes $385.00
