Archers Organics proudly offer our first release of CSA boxes. These boxes will contain locally grown, seasonal organic produce, fruit and eggs. This form of agriculture allows the consumer to directly invest in their farmer and locally grown organic food.
What is CSA? Community supported agriculture is a grass roots movement that allows the consumer to directly support the Organic movement and receive high quality, healthy organic food for themselves and families.
• We will be releasing 25 Farmers boxes for the year of 2015
• Boxes are being sold on a first come first serve basis
• The cost of a box is $2,600/ year or $50/month
• Boxes may be collected on your allotted pick up day and may be collected during farm opening hours from 8:00-6:30 Monday-Friday
• If travelling you may notify the farm that a third party will collect the box on your behalf or you may choose to allow Archers to sell the box and use the funds to donate to our “Organic education and learning centre” fund
Whats in your CSA box?
The contents of the box will change with the seasons, whatever bounty we have at the farm we share with you. Through this process you will be introduced to many fruits and veg that you know but we will also be growing a host of veg that the Bajan market hasn’t seen before. We are working closely with local organic seed purveyor Mathew Gittens of La Maison Verde to bring you over 175 varieties of heirloom organic veg at the farm. Bio-diversity and more choice for the consumer is what we offer you at Archer's organics
At Archer's Organics we believe that it is our duty as members of the Organic Growers and Consumers Association of Barbados (OGCA) and as ethical producers of food to not poison our customers. We never spray or use and chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. We practice and promote sustainable organic farming practices.
We look forward to welcoming your to the Archers organics family and helping you to feed yourself and family healthy, local, organic fruits and vegetables.
