We Deliver Fresh Produce From Our Farm To Your Door.

Servicing Durham and York Regions.

Registration for the Forsythe Farms’ CSA will Begin in Late March

We look forward to growing with you

Imagine what life would be like if local farmers in your area got together once a week, bringing with them their finest crops at the peak of the growing season.

Imagine them carefully selecting each item with you in mind, taking the time to piece together a delivery bag just for you, & when they’re satisfied with the quality, they themselves deliver it straight to your door.

Imagine how exciting each delivery would be as your discover new recipes, explore new varieties, find new favorites & become a better chef at home.

Can you imagine the freshness and all the flavors?

Imagine how much easier it would it be to keep up good habits of eating well & eating local, when it comes delivered right to your door each week?

This is what being one of our members feels like!

This is What Eating Local is All About!

Forsythe Farms’ CSA Membership

Membership to the Forsythe Farms’ Community Shared Agriculture Program, or CSA, is for those desiring a way of sourcing sustainably grown produce with the convenience of having it delivered from our Farm to your door.

"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."

~Sarah from Uxbridge

"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."

~Mary-Elizabeth from Richmond Hill

"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!"

~Jen from Oshawa

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.

 ~Sandie from Markham

“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.”

~Barbara from Oshawa

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.
