Community is everything here at ATG. Check out our community of bakers, chefs, schools, restaurants and businesses who work with our grains. Whether they stock our grains on their shelves, share them in their CSA's or offer our grains as part of their menu - these are our people. Want to be part of the movement? Just drop us a line!
We believe that collaboration is the key to a locally driven food system. By partnering with other farmers in the Ottawa region through the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) concept we are able to consistently bring you the goodness of fresh, local grain alongside your veggie box every week!
A grain share from Against the Grain Farms allows CSA customers to sample a variety of specialty whole grains and flours grown from ancient grain varieties on our farm. Each week your grain share will be unique, showcasing one of our many grain varieties. A CSA share will include our grains in the form of flour, whole grain, specialty baking mix, or tortilla chips accompanied by a user friendly recipe, and often a locally produced jam, chutney or additive pairing.
Through our grain share we aim to:
-Provide CSA members with a seasonal supply of healthy, non- GMO grains and flour, that are not only better for your health than many main stream grain options, but come from a long history of cultivation and tradition.
-Provide CSA members with an alternative food systems approach to grain consumption and help support and inspire members to get creative with their cooking, baking, and food pairings.
-Foster the growth of local food networks by supplying locally produced grain as well as other local producers' products that specifically compliment our grains.
