The Wiens Shared Farm - A Root Source for Vegetables
1208 PR 200
St. Germain South, Manitoba
Join us in growing beautiful food...lettuce as green as life itself, carrots that smile back at you, food grown with a lot of care and a bit of flare. The Wiens Shared Farm is about farming on a firendly scale. this entails a grower-eater relationship; a collaboration based on trust and transparency. No middle people, no chemicals, no profit-driven exploitation of workers, eaters, or the earth.
By becoming a Sharer in the Wiens Farm, you become a part of a safer, healthier, more vibrant food system. Our Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) model is a system that works better for farm, eater and the earth.
CSA Here's the deal: Sharers purchase a share in the spring and receive a "blue box" of in-season vegetables through thte growing season. the contents of the box vary based on what is happening withthe weather, the field and the workers. shares are delivered weekly to 4 drop-off sites in Winnipeg for pick up. Grower and eater share the risks inherent in farming as well as the possible abundance.
One box/share is roughly enough veggies for 4-5 people. Splitting shares is encouraged.
