Market or Curbside?

Our Farm Market is open for in store shopping for the season!

For those who choose to order online, and pick up via curbside, there are some things you need to know! For Contact Free Curbside Pick Up:

1.    Chose the products you would like. We have tried to showcase many of the products that are available in our Market, on our online store. There is a minimum order amount of $50. Upon checkout, you will receive an email with your order details, along with an approximate price.

2.     For convenience, in the first page of a product, you can simply click “Add to Cart” to add one item of this product to your cart.  The page then stays open for continued shopping on this page. If you wish to purchase more than one, or if you require more details about the product, such as size or more description, please click on the product name or photo, and a secondary page will provide this information to you. On it, you can arrow up to order more than one item, and then click Add to Cart.  There is also a “Continue Shopping” option, which will take you back to the main products menu.

3.     We are all about freshness, so we will only pick your order shortly in advance of your preselected pick up time. Freezer and cooler items will be kept frozen and refrigerated until your arrival. You will be sent an email, with your exact total, at least 1 hour prior to pick up.

4.     We will do our best to have all of the items you select, but due to seasonality and supply, some products may not be available. We will not be substituting for unavailable products.

5.   Weekly Produce Boxes are available by ordering through curbside only.  Produce boxes are $35. The minimum fee charge will be waived for produce box orders. 

6.    Select the date and time when you would like to collect your groceries from our Curbside team. In June, we will be offering curbside on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please remember that if you are selecting baking from Anna Mae’s in Millbank, they deliver on Mondays, and Wednesdays; if selecting Sourdough Bread from Elora Bakery, they deliver on Thursdays. Therefore, please select an afternoon pick up time on one of these days to ensure freshness and availability. 

7.    When you arrive at our Farm, please park in one of the designated Curbside Pickup parking spaces, on the East side of our Farm Market, and text or call 548 883 7576 to tell us your curbside spot #, and your 4 digit order number.   Payment is made at time of pickup with wireless debit/credit machines. It is contactless, as you can tap through the window of your vehicle. Open your trunk and we will deliver your groceries.

P. Y. O. Strawberries

Our PYO Strawberry season is closed for 2021. Our Farm Market will have berries available for purchase, but the opportunity to pick your own is finished for this year!

When we are open, this is how we operate our PYO strawberry field in order to promote the wellbeing of our community, and in adherence with the guidelines established by local and provincial authorities. In our PYO strawberry patches we will:

  • Ask customers to complete a wellness self assessment prior to arriving at our PYO fields ( https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/ ) and to stay home if they do not pass the assessment.
  • Ask all customers to drive to our PYO field, and park in the designated parking spaces.
  • Have one-direction foot paths for customers to enter and return from the field. (All PYO customers must be able to walk at least 1 km, as some rows are a distance from the parking lot.)
  • Charge by volume to reduce points of contact between customers and customer service staff in the field. 
  • Allow customers to purchase and pick into either a1.5 L basket for $7, or a 3L basket for $14 or a standardized 5.6 L pail for $28. Return customers may reuse any of these standardized containers on subsequent visits. 
  • Charge each customer (over the age of 14) for a minimum of one basket or pail of strawberries, to enter the patch. 
  • Expect children to stay with their family unit at all times, and pick only in their assigned row. 
  • Encourage all customers to practice proper sanitation. Hand sanitizer will be offered at the entrance to and the exit from the field. 
  • NOT permit sampling or eating in the field. Anyone eating will be asked to leave the farm, and a refund will not be given.
  • Assign rows to customers, and operate a flag system to indicate where one customer has finished picking and the next customer should begin.  Customers may pick only in their row, and not from the adjacent rows.
  • Not allow pets on the farm.

We thank you for adhering to these guidelines. Any guests to our farm not respecting them may be asked to leave and a refund will not be given. 

PYO location:1264 Erb’s Road, St. Agatha.  Look for the large roadside sign.
