Small: feeds 1-2 people for a week
This produce bag is made up of the most local produce we can source. When in season we will source items from Niagara farmers, however, please note: we are a year-round operation. Therefore, we are forced to put certain items in the bag that are not local due to our growing seasons.
Items you may expect to find in your produce bag include: tomatoes, zucchini, green onions, white potatoes, russet potatoes, onions, spanish onions, red onions, apples, lettuce, kale, mushrooms, green beans, carrots, brussel sprouts, cucumbers, cabbage, broccoli, beets, parsnips, turnips, celery, garlic, tomatoes.
Contents will vary weekly! Subscribe to the email newsletter at the bottom of this page for a list of what fruits and vegetables are in the bag week to week.
*Please note, we add in produce that is not local but this will be very limited. For example, if we come across an excess of avocados, we'd like to be able to provide them to you and will add them. Or, we add bananas, because a lot of our subscribers are parents, and the kids enjoy them. And in some cases, we buy them so they can be given out easily to the people who are still without a home in Niagara.
Our point? We want local more than anyone, and this subscription is us navigating the current food system in real time, to increase our purchasing power, and grow and buy more local food.
When we purchase from a local food system, the profit stays within our community. We believe this is a great way to unite the various groups within Niagara to both fundraise but also feed. And grow.
And then grow even more.

Small scale farms produce bags are a great option for people who want to support local agriculture. I always receive a nice variety of fresh vegetables delivered straight to my door. What more could I want?
Was so excited, but wasn’t executed well
They missed something in my order, when I followed up she said she would circle back and then never did, even after a few attempts

Been purchasing since 2018 and I can't say how much I appreciate Renee and her team.
I wanted this to be better than it turned out to be
I really wanted to be supportive of local farmers and I understand that we live in Canada, and we don’t always have local produce to be offered. However with that being said, I don’t want to be receiving food that was discarded by the grocery stores. It’s been made clear multiple times by Renee that the food in the produce boxes are discarded. It shows in the quantity and quality of the items in the weekly box. The items are always unpredictable, and go bad quicker than they should. For the price I shouldn’t be receiving seconds, and the experience with Small Scale Farms was a disappointment week after week. Like I said, I really wanted to be supportive of this but I just can’t keep spending money on low quality produce. Sorry
I like the concept, I would like less fruit and more vegetables if possible. (I do not like any fruit ☹️)
