What to expect from your ClearWater Basket Experience

Hi Friends,

Farmer Daniel here. I’ve been involved in growing for weekly veggie basket programs since the year 2000, and I wanted to give you a heads up about what you can expect from your ClearWater Basket Program experience. If you are looking for the selection you’d find in a grocery store, you are in the wrong place. If you are looking for the cheapest possible produce, look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for the tastiest food that is highly medicinal, and grown with love of people and the earth in mind, then the ClearWater Basket is for you! Through participating in our basket program you will be eating sustainably grown food, and what is in season in southern Ontario. Yes, this means sometimes you will get radishes multiple weeks in a row, and you will need to learn to get creative with kale and Swiss chard (or share it with your loved ones!) Beyond the flavour and incredible nutrition, the benefits of being part of a weekly produce program are immense. You are supporting a small farm focused on providing experiential educational opportunities to children. You will have the opportunity to be creative and flexible in the kitchen. You will know where your food comes from, and feel the peace of mind that comes from choosing to participate in a food system that enriches the earth, rather than harming it. In short, through the ClearWater Basket Program, you can expect to enrich your quality of life while changing the world. One radish at a time.
