ABOUT

The Local Food Box Program is a marketing partnership between Metchosin farmers.

Program participants receive a food box  from early June to mid-October, for a total of 20 weeks.  The contents of the meat and veggies options are prepared by the farmers according to what is in season or in stock. You can customize the contents of your food box with the following options:

  • Organically grown fruits and vegetables (weekly)
  • Metchosin-raised meats (bi-weekly)
  • Free-range eggs (weekly)
  • Seasonal flower bouquets (bi-weekly)

Prices for each box option are outlined below.
