What if I don’t like everything in the produce share?
**Swaps ONLY Available in Seaforth**
We know that everyone’s lifestyle is different and so are their tastes, so we have developed a program that allows for 2 “swaps” from each produce box to take place at time of pick up from our swap table.
Each week we have a points board set up at the time of pick up so that customers can see how many points their produce items are worth. Each produce item is given a certain amount of points relating to it’s current dollar value. Customers are then able to “swap” out 2 items from their share if they do not want to keep them.
For example: Lucy knows that her family loves avocado, and would like to have more than the two in her share. She also knows that she is not going to use onions this week, so she swaps 4 onions (1 point value each) for 2 avocados (2 points each).
Is the produce the same each week?
The produce changes weekly for all of the mentioned shares, depending on what is available from our suppliers/farmers and what is in season.
Please note that the items noted in the shares may change due to supply and quality, however we do our best to keep things the same as what is stated Saturday morning.
Regardless, our shares always hold the same monetary value despite minor changes that may take place in the produce items.
Is your produce local?
Whenever possible, we source our produce from local farmers. Unfortunately, living in Canada makes sourcing fresh produce in the winter months a little difficult. This is why we have teamed up with a local, family run business who also owns property in the USA (Georgia), to enable access to great produce year round. Some of the produce still does come from other southern countries, such as our bananas and avocados, however whenever possible we support local farmers and businesses.
