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.
