a vegetable harvest box and add ons
How It Works
YYC Growers’ Harvest Box is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)-style program that is unique to Calgary. We draw from 15 farm owners, who grow in and around Calgary, producing a diverse medley of vegetables and other crops.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY
Since we are at home, we will be eating a lot more of your wonderful veggies! What is the best way to increase our share? Also, once we start feeling better, I am happy to help deliver to those in need. Keep up the good work!
Just got my first veggies from YYC Growers. They might be a little more money, but if you want quality and great taste, you pay for what you get. Definitely will continue to purchase from them. So glad I took a chance, very happy with everything I got
Thanks so much! Veggie pickups are a highlight of our toddler's week. He loves looking at each veggie and asking questions each week! It's been great to integrate them into his diet with this added interest.
Thank you very much! I can't say enough how incredible this service is, and everything that you are all doing for the community is absolutely amazing.
Thank you, Rod, for all that you and the team are doing to keep us fed and healthy, and to continue to support the vibrant community of growers!
Awesome fresh food. The taste certainly tells you the quality is top notch. We have been so very impressed and excited to support our local economy.
Absolutely recommend YYC Growers and distributors. We need to supporting the local farmers. Thank you for all that you do to serve the community and support the farmers.
Since starting the Harvest Box Program. I have discovered an even deeper love for cooking and have been able to keep myself challenged and excited during this troubling time with new ingredients I've never used before. Its been an incredible experience so far and I look forward to my produce every week. Plus it's an added bonus that I am supporting local, I love it.
This is a worthwhile investment in the community, in lovely people, in sustainability, in freshness, in health, in taste, in happiness. I highly recommend trying so that you can decide if you get the same sense of gratefulness for this service.
Look forward to my harvest box every week. Produce is wonderful and I enjoy the occasional addition of a local product I hadn't tried like mob honey or holy kraut. Love that I am getting local items that come direct from nearby growers and makers and you can taste the difference that makes. A much more sustainable choice. Everyone I've dealt with have been super friendly and helpful. Pick up couldn't be easier. Definitely recommend.
our vision for the future
We hope to create a cooperative founded on the assumption that what is good for the earth will be good for us. We envision a vibrant, resonant, more transparent and compassionate food system. We will continue our dedication to shared health, vitality and resilience.
We have “cracked the code” for the mutually-beneficial, urban-rural relationship, and the dynamic bridge between urban and rural communities will continue to grow.
We will be led by a robust scientific understanding of our personal impact on the broader ecosystem, and by the belief that we can all take actions for good.
We envision a reimagined agriculture as the primary force to reconfigure and regenerate the land—both in cities and small towns, as well as in rural areas.
Farmers will be favourably known for living lives that people want to follow and emulate. Our goal is for farmers to be recognized and rewarded for the work of saving the flavour of food and for building soil so that agriculture can carry on for generations.
WHY YYC GROWERS?
To shake the hand that planted the seeds is to build trust. You can trust how the food is grown, and that our farmers’ priority on soil health means increased nutrition and better flavour for you. Our ethical farmers grow food in earth-friendly and earth-enhancing ways.
It is increasingly important for Albertans to reduce their dependence on other regions for access to healthy food. There is an urgent need for regional, agricultural resilience, held up by distribution that supports farmers in equitable ways.
Your food will be fresher, tastier, more nutritious and earth-friendlier. We believe that eating a little more within the limits of the seasons puts a smile on Mother Nature’s face.
