Lucky Bug Farm
Lucky Bug Farm is a small-scale, woman-led, Black-owned, rural farm in Wellington County. We're growing vegetables, fruit, herbs, flowers and a better food system.
Lucky Bug Farm will be running an 18-week summer and fall Community Supported Agriculture program in 2022! Members will receive between eight and ten items per share and can choose to pick up their shares on a weekly or bi-weekly basis and to pay upfront or as-they-go. You'll also choose to sign up whether you'll pick up your shares on Sundays afternoons at the Feed Change Market or on Monday evenings at the Wooden Boat Food Company. Shares will be available to the public starting the first week of March but you can sign up to our newsletter for early access on our website.
