Melrose Market Garden is a non-certified, organic market garden style farm located just east of Belleville, Ontario. We believe in providing fresh, seasonal, local veggies from our farm to your home. We believe people should have a relationship with their food, one that gives back to both you and the land. Instead of organic certification, we believe in "Face Certification: a direct contact between farmer and consumer that creates an environment for trust and faith," as described by Douglas Gayeton. We believe in transparent farming practices and being open and honest about all inputs used on our farm. We do not use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, or any genetically modified seed. We sell veggies, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares, organic eggs and maple syrup.

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, which is essentially a subscription for vegetables. Members pay up front to secure their share. We farmers then use the money to buy seeds and equipment and get food growing. Then, each week, beginning in mid June 2020 to mid October 2020, our members receive fresh, local, seasonal vegetables. In addition to a weekly box of 7-10 different sustainably grown vegetables, your CSA membership includes:
