Fresh Organic Food & Local Farmers
Seasonal Harvest Delivered to Your Door!
Farm Box Manifesto
We are hearing from you that our community wants REAL FOOD – food grown with love, not chemicals, by people who share our love of the earth and desire for health & vitality.
By choosing REAL FOOD you are helping to reduce CO2 emissions, build top soil, eliminate toxic pesticides from our lakes and rivers, save the bees, prevent animal cruelty, and support our small-scale organic farmers, who, by doing what they do, are true stewards of our Earth and of our Future!
Yes, by the simple act of choosing REAL FOOD, you are doing all of this because you are participating in a food chain that feeds the earth and the community as much as it feeds your body.

Fair Trade Matters
This time of year we look to farms further away to supplement the local food in our boxes. We want you to know that as we look to far-out places for food in the winter, we choose to source from producers who act locally in their own communities. Fair-Trade social premiums are invested back into the community, used to create social programs and to support small-scale producers. Our purchases have a meaningful impact to the producers that we buy from.
New! AB Winter Greens
Alberta Grown Lettuce, Kale & Herbs are keeping things fresh AND local at Farm Box this winter! Schipper Farms, located on Bow Island, Alberta is very much a family business. In their small one acre greenhouse, they grow their delicious greens hydroponically without the use of any pesticides or herbicides. Their goal is to produce food that is healthy for the environment and the consumer and recently they have expanded to include multiple solar panels for on-farm energy production.
Winter Fruit Box
Did you know that kiwis have more vitamin C than oranges? That the rich pink and red colors of grapefruit are due to lycopene, a powerful anti-oxidant? Food is medicine and we believe that a wide variety of fruit in a winter diet is an important part of a healthy body and strong immune system! Our Fruit Box this winter includes local apples and pears, but also seasonal citrus from California, and fair-trade fruit from farms further away. Feed your body with a rainbow of nutrients & flavours this winter!
