Online Shopping for Farm Curbside Pickup or in-person Market Pickup Available July 15th! 

       Farm curbside pickup will start July 15th! Once this service opens, it’s oh-so simple! 1) Fill up your virtual shopping cart with produce through our Shop page and prepay with one of the provided options, and then 2) come to our farm location on Thursdays (between 4-6pm) for easy and efficient curbside pickup! 

If you live closer to the markets than our farm, you can still utilize this service (for in-person pickup at the markets only)! When placing an order, just make a note of the pick-up details: 1) Which market you’ll be picking up from (Strathcona, Bountiful or St. Albert) and 2) Which day you will be picking it up (Friday – Bountiful only OR Saturday).

The deadline for Thursday farm pickup or weekend markets in person pickup is every Wednesday 10am.

First Farm Box arriving Thursday, July 15th: pre-order your boxes starting May 21st! 
          Farm boxes are assortments of each week’s freshest veggies as well as staple favourites. While we won’t have a 16-week Farm Box subscription like we did last year, we will instead be offering 1) single-week farm boxes that customers can order and re-order whenever desired, and 2) a four-weeks subscription that can be ordered monthly. When you order a farm box, you can choose from several pick-up locations and days: our farm (Thursdays), Strathcona Market (Saturdays), Bountiful Market (Fridays/Saturdays) or St. Albert Market (Saturdays). 

The first farm boxes will available for pickup on Thursday, July 15th! Pre-orders are necessary and can be done starting May 21st! To order, visit our Shop page, select your desired option (single box/four-week subscription) to your cart, and eagerly wait for your first pick-up on July 15th! We’re excited to see you too! 

Where We Sell: Strathcona, Bountiful and St. Albert (starting June 12!) 
       Currently, we are attending the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market (Saturdays) and the Bountiful Farmers’ Market (Fridays and Saturdays). We will also be at the St. Albert Farmers’ Market (Saturdays) starting June 12th. Apart from online and at the markets, you’ll find our produce at Grapevine Deli, Amaranth Whole Foods Market and Blush Lane. Our produce is also part of the Organic Box and SPUD delivery services.

~Seasonal update~

Welcome to spring! It’s lovely to see the sun shining, the snow melting, and new life beginning to appear. We’ve recently started seeding, and we’re quickly getting ready for a new farming season to begin. Despite the current uncertainties, we’re planning to go through with farmwork as normally as we can, in hopes that some regularity will be back by the summertime. We hope that you are all enjoying the new spring and staying healthy, whatever your situation is.

We are at the Strathcona Farmers’ Market on Saturdays’, all year round. The market is still open during this time, and they are enforcing physical distancing by allowing only a certain number of shoppers in at once. For more updates regarding COVID-19 related accommodations, please visit https://osfm.ca/news-events/covid-19-update.

In the summers, we are also at the St. Albert Farmers’ Market (Saturday) and the Callingwood Farmers’ Market (Sunday). To find out more information about the locations where we sell, check out the “Where We Sell” tab. For an updated portfolio of the produce we have each week, check out the ‘Produce’ tab!

As you might have already noticed, we have updated our website! It is now mobile friendly so you can check us out on all your devices! Another cool feature of this website is that you’ll be able to see which products we have each week, so if you’re wanting a specific veggie, you can check if we have it that specific week! We’re hoping that our new website will make you feel more connected to us, and if you have any feedback, feel free to email us at contact@peasonearth.ca.

Once again, thank you for all your support, and we hope to see you soon!
