Forsythe Farms CSA Membership
Nature’s Unfiltered and Simply Good Food
Really missing farm fresh produce and it’s amazing flavour right now? Do you love the adventure and the convenience of having a selection of fresh produce picked and packed for you each week? Think about joining our CSA program.
What is a CSA? Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) programs enable community members to support and invest in the farmer’s fruit and vegetable production in exchange for a share of the harvest- fruits and vegetables fresh from the fields. CSA’s build closer relationships between the local farmer and their community. Know your farmer, Know your food is exemplified in our CSA program.
With membership you help fund the cost of the seeds, the plants, the growing and the harvesting but you leave the work to us. You’re investing in our farms growing season and sharing in the benefits and the risks of farming.
Your reward is a selection of fruits and vegetables given to you weekly or biweekly fresh from the fields during our 18 week season. You get the inside scoop of what’s happening on the farm, enjoy the bounty of the harvest and opportunities to come out and enjoy the activities our farm has to offer.
Our CSA program brings sustainably grown fruits and vegetables fresh from our farm and the local farming community directly to you.

“Last season was my first year participating in a CSA and I was dually impressed with the quantity and quality of their produce! I literally couldn’t wait to come home to find my weekly produce bag and see what surprises were hidden inside. I absolutely love supporting a local business and the quality of the produce is seriously unreal. I happily refer others to their service as I love hearing their feedback after trying it just once.”
“My husband and I have participated in both the spring-fall share program as well as the winter share program. We have absolutely loved it! It is so exciting when you get the weekly emails telling you what you will be getting in your share that week. As a young, recently married couple we have enjoyed discovering how to cook vegetables that we may never have tried when walking through the grocery store. The CSA program has expanded our recipes as well as helped us eat more fruits and vegetables on a regular basis. The staff at Forsythe are amazing and always willing to meet our needs and make adjustments to our share. The fruits and vegetables always come fresh and are delicious! We have never been disappointed.”
I just want to say how much I have enjoyed the winter share program. It has been so much fun to get my children involved. My 3 year old daughter has been responsible for putting our cooler out every other Wednesday and she and my 7 year old son rush eagerly to see what is in there in the afternoon. We all really enjoyed the puffed wheat both as a snack on it’s own and in an old family recipe for Puffed Wheat Cake that my great-grandmother used to make. Very impressed!
I would like to let you know that by choosing to by locally I am getting fresher produce. It lasts much longer and the flavor is usually better. It is very convenient to have it appear at my door.
Also I find that I am going to the grocery store less often so in the long run I am saving money.
“We are coming up to our 5th year with CSA, which is delivered to my work place. Daniel arrives and everyone at work is excited to see what is in the share that week. It’s always a surprise and my family is excited when I arrive home with all the goodies. Daniel always has a smile on his face which makes the day even brighter. Your doing a wonderful job Daniel and you are always providing amazing service.”
Amazing – great product, great people and a seamless accommodating process. Not being able to get the share every week on the same day worried me a bit, but Daniel 100 accommodated the situation and went above in my mind by allowing substitutions of things I wasn’t a big fan of in some weekly shares.
Forsythe Farms CSA was created by Daniel Forsythe shortly after he finished high school as a way to be a part of the farm but have his own unique enterprise. Daniel is the second generation of the Forsythe Family Farms 2009 Inc. in Uxbridge, Ontario. He is passionate about the success and growth of the local farm and community. Daniel lives with his wife, Jocelyn and their family in the Durham Region. He enjoys being involved in various local outreach programs. In his spare time he enjoys black coffee, cartoons and studying Christian theology .
Daniel has handed over the management of his CSA to his parents at Forsythe Family Farms 2009 Inc while he pursues a post secondary education. His goal is to use his entrepreneurial experience gleaned from his time on the farm and with his CSA to work with young people and help them build skills to succeed in life.
