Harvest Box Add-ons – Eggs, Beef, Cheese and Coffee

Check out all of our amazing new Harvest Box add-ons, available with your veggies or on their own!

1. Beef Share
Introducing ethical, grass-fed beef from Earthworks Farm and Trail's End Beef. These are two amazing local ranches, located just outside of Alex & Nanton, AB respectively. These businesses are setting the bar when it comes to demonstrating the utmost care and attention for the welfare of their animals, as well as the soil & pasture. This beef is hormone-free and antibiotics are only ever administered in emergencies. We guarantee that you'll taste the difference or your money back.

Each week you'll get approximately 3lbs of beef. Expect a rotation of ground beef, roasts, steaks, and unique cuts (ribs, stew beef, etc.). $37.50 per delivery (pro-rated), available at our Bowness, Aspen, Hillhurst & Marda Loop pick-up locations.

 

2. Cheese Share
We've teamed up with Shawn McDonald of Springbank Cheese Co. - Marda Loop to bring you a bi-weekly selection of fine artisan cheeses. You can expect product from the following dairies: Sylvan Star Cheese CompanyLatin Foods Inc.Winding Road Artisan CheeseFairwinds FarmKootenay Apline Cheese Company, as well as some smaller vendors that YYC Growers will source from directly. While the majority of cheese will be sourced from Alberta and BC, we may occasionally bring in cheese from Ontario or Quebec to satisfy needs like Cheddar.

The Cheese Share is $20/delivery (pro-rated) and portions will vary depending on the price of that delivery's cheese selection. This share is available at our Bowness, Hillhurst & Marda Loop pick-up locations.

 

3. Egg Share
Our newest Farm Member, Calico Farms, brings you local eggs from happy hens. Calico Farms' hens have access to pasture, sunshine, fresh air and even scraps from the kitchen. While not organic, Calico Farms' hen feed is grown and milled locally.

The cost per dozen eggs is $6.50. No limit on the number of cartons per customer. This share is available at all of our pick-up locations, with the exception of Market on Macleod.

 

4. Granola Share
This artisan granola is hand-crafted locally by a fellow Cooperative, The Grain Exchange. More aptly named, 'grain-ola', The Grain Exchange uses Alberta grown oats, oat flour & buckwheat as well as other unique ingredient additions each week. You can expect delicious flavours such as Wild Blueberry and Cherry Garcia. But what really makes this granola unique is a sourdough fermented culture added to each batch -- this makes it easier to digest so you can obtain the full nutritional benefits of the ingredients.

Bags are 1lb at $10 each with a commitment of 9 deliveries from January through April. This share is available at all of our pick-up locations.

 

5. Coffee Share
Ethically sourced, small batch, hand roasted coffee is brought to you by our warehouse friends: Devil's Head Coffee. Devil's Head Coffee always aims to provide you with the best tasting coffee possible, roasting every batch of coffee fresh and extracting the most colourful flavour possible from each coffee bean.  This coffee is sure to fuel all your adventures, and elevate your day.
