We are a 80 member CSA. 2014 is our 5th season. We run 2 market / member depots a week - Wednesday in Port Dover and Thursday in Waterford. Vegetable production is our main focus.
Early season is strictly greenhouse, then we have 4 other fields that turn into timelines for the longest season we can get. 2014 will be a 24 week harvest. We also grow for storage and go deep into the winter with stored root cellar and greenhouse items.
We live in a modern home, that is well equipped for helpers to have their own space. Our 2 fields walking distance from our home. One field is 6 acres, the other one acre tucked away in a forest tree line with its own pond that is great for fishing and swimming.

The two of us are the only people who work our land so help is always greatly appreciated. Amanda learned to farm this way - travelling to organic farms to volunteer and did a full season internship before starting Sweet Pea in 2010.

We are located just off a main Road (Cockshutte) 8 minutes drive into the local beach town of Port Dover or Simcoe. Long Point is about a 20 minute drive.
