Farmed by Martti & Melanie Lemieux, Valleyfield is focused on building rich topsoil to nurture flavourful, nutrient dense foods for the families of Algoma through regenerative agriculture.

A Farm Share (often called a CSA for Community Shared Agriculture) is a pre-season investment in good, clean food. The value of your share is used to stabilize up-front costs such as the purchase of naturally sourced seeds, biological soil amendments and supplies.
In return for your farm share you receive dividends in the form of truly farm fresh food.
A farm share forms a bridge that enables an equitable and secure exchange of food that transcends the consumer/producer relationship and becomes a relationship of co-production and community.
B. A share is valued at $475 and consists of approx.16 weekly pick ups from mid-June to mid-October.
Payment can be made in one installment of $475 or it can be split into three installments as follows. (alternate arrangements can also be made if needed:)
1. $75 (sign up deposit)
2. $200 April 1
3. $200 May 1
We then reserve food from our weekly harvests and sort into shares to be picked up at Mill Market on Saturday mornings between 8:00am and 1:00pm or Wednesday afternoons from 1-6pm.
