**The Winter Bounty Box program is full for 2020/21. Please put your name on the waitlist here.

  • The Winter Bounty Box program features our certified organic veggies, pasture-raised chicken, turkey, pork and eggs as well as all other products that are sold in the Sideroad Farm Store (honey, maple syrup, bread, pork, beef, lamb, dairy, dry goods, coffee, tea, household goods, etc.)
  • The Winter Bounty Box is available in Markdale, Collingwood, Meaford and the Blue Mountains area as well as in Toronto. You can also pick up your box from our farm in Walter’s Falls or a depot in Collingwood (location TBD).
  • The Winter Bounty Box is customizable. You select what you want to go in your box weekly from the list of available veggies, chicken, pork, beef, turkey and eggs and other products to each delivery. All products sold through the Sideroad Farm Store are available to WBB.
  • You do not have to order weekly. Pick and choose when you want to order.

Program Length and Start

The Winter Bounty Box starts the first week of November and deliveries occur every week until the end of March. You can pick and choose which dates you want to order a bounty box.

Available Product

What is available on a biweekly basis depends on our supply and how much you all are ordering. You will be sent an online order form via email several days prior to delivery. You are responsible for filling out the order form on a timely basis and you must order a minimum of $30 worth of product per delivery. For items in short supply, orders will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

The following is a list of what we expect to be able to offer from our farm over the winter season:

Veggies include but are not limited to: Potatoes, beets, carrots, kale, swiss chard, winter squash, pumpkins, leeks, pea shoots, microgreens, head lettuce, salad mix, spinach, celeriac, radishes, salad turnips, and cabbage.

Pasture-Raised, Organic Fed Chicken: Whole birds, soup birds, boneless/skinless breasts, thighs, wings, drumsticks, ground chicken.

Pasture-Raised, Organic-Fed Turkey (available in January): Ground turkey.

Pasture-Raised, Organic-Fed Heritage Pork: sausages, bacon, chops, roasts, ground.

Organic Fed Chicken Eggs: Sold by the dozen.

Other products: We are happy to partner with other local farms to offer products through the Winter Bounty Box that we feel good about selling (and eating!) like local grass-fed beef, pasture-raised pork, fresh baked bread, local sheep yogurt, honey, directly traded chocolate and coffee and maple syrup. All products sold at the Sideroad Farm Store will be available to WBB members this season. When we sell out of our vegetable storage crops we will purchase from Pfennings Organics, an organic farm and wholesaler based in Kitchener Waterloo.

Pricing and Commitment

Unlike our summer CSA program, there is no set price for the Winter Bounty Box. The amount you pay weekly depends on the amount you order. We require a minimum order of $30 in order to pack and deliver a box to you.

In order to secure your space in the program we require a minimum deposit of $200 (please feel free to deposit more as many of you can spend that in one delivery). You are not required to spend more than $200 for the whole season. If you do not use the whole amount within the winter season, the deposit is not refundable. We are limiting the number of spaces in the program to try to keep a good supply of veggies available to those who have registered.

Sample $32 Box (just above the minimum order for delivery)

1 bunch of kale – $4
2 lbs of potatoes – $5
1 170g bag of spinach – $6
1 dozen eggs – $7.50
1 lb boneless/skinless chicken breast – $12

Home Delivery ($7.50 fee per delivery) OR Pick Up (no charge)

Home delivery is available to homes located in Meaford, the Town of The Blue Mountains and Collingwood for a cost of $7.50/delivery. **New in 2020** We will be offering home delivery in Toronto on Wednesdays for a cost of $10/delivery. You can also pick up your Winter Bounty Box at our farm in Walter’s Falls or from a depot in Collingwood (location TBD) for no charge.
