Owners

Alain Rousselle & Eva P. Rehak

Brief History

With more than ten years’ experience in eco-friendly farming in Canada and abroad, Alain Rousselle and Eva P. Rehak are both graduates of the agricultural technology program at University of Guelph. After gaining extensive experience in community-supported agriculture (CSA) in southern Quebec, they launched their own enterprise in the spring of 2010 in Saint-Maurice in southeastern New Brunswick.

Description

The farm produces more than 40 to 50 varieties of certified organic mixed vegetables and fruits from its 2 acres of fertile soil. The owners seek to supply superior-quality produce to the people of southeastern New Brunswick. Supporting Alva Farm is supporting sustainable farming that leaves a small ecological footprint on our planet while also encouraging the next generation of farmers.

What's new?

CSA

Community-supported agriculture (CSA, also known as community-shared agriculture) is a concept bringing together consumers and local farms that follow environmentally friendly practices through a partnership of mutual commitment. People can “partner” with a farm by paying in advance for a share of its harvest. Participating produce farms deliver baskets containing a variety of vegetables to a convenient drop-off point each week.



Registration for CSA subscriptions begins in February.
Pickup Points: Dieppe, Moncton, Riverview, Shediac, Bouctouche

Where sold

Products are available directly at the farm and at the Dieppe Farmers’ Market every Saturday, from May until end of autumn at the «Coin Bio» market stand.
CSA vegetable boxes can be picked up on the farm or at a designated pickup point, the Victoria Park in Moncton on Wednesdays.
The farm also offers home delivery in Dieppe.
