Based on the CSA outline (Community Supported Agriculture), Farmers and Buyers (Partners) work together as a team. The partners purchase the season's worth of veggies at the beginning of the season which the farmer uses to buy seed, equipment, compost and anything we need to plant and grow your food. The basis is to support growing locally grown food and you benefit by receiving the best of the bounty each week. Our fillable sign up form is below.
Here at Mingle Hill Farms, we only grow organically. We have 13 years of organic growing experience. Previously certified from 2008 to 2012 for growing organic sunflowers, we have now become Certified Organic for our vegetables and lavender. With organic growing, you know that all the produce you receive will be free of herbicides and pesticides, and safe for you and your family to enjoy.

Going on Vacation?
Going on vacation? Good for you! We would love to be able to give you that extra box when you return, however, all our planting is already done and even though I tell the plants to slow down, they do not listen. We would love to supply your box that week to one of your friends or family members. If all your friends and family are going on vacation with you (why didn't you invite us?), we would be happy to donate it to the West Lincoln Community Care or Village of Hope on your behalf.
All the boring stuff
Each week, we will be delivering you a box carefully packed with your farm fresh veggies. As farmers, we plan our crops in December of the previous year and have allotted certain crops for our Farm Box program. If you are unable to receive your box due to a vacation, we would be happy to have a friend or family member receive it in your absence.We would also be happy to donate it to Community Care of West Niagara in your name.You will receive a charitable tax receipt for the value of the Farm Box. Although in previous years, we have supplied reusable plastic bins for your veggies.Due to recommendations by Health Canada and the unavailability of such boxes due to COVID-19, we must supply your vegetables in prepacked plastic bags until further notice.We apologize for the environmental impact. All of the above is an agreement with the Farmer (Mingle Hill Farms) and the Partners (you) in supporting the fresh local food movement and enjoying the best of the bounty.
