Umi Nami Farm

Vegetable Box Program

Thanks for your interest in our box program!  

Please sign up and we’ll be happy to serve you!  All you need to do is send us an email at uminamifarm@gmail.com or call 250-391-0763 to sign up.  Please tell us…

  • which size box you want
  • a phone number that we can reach you at
  • whether you prefer Wednesday or Saturday pick up

Please also note that we specialize in Japanese vegetables.  We do some Western vegetables too, but our box program is a good fit for people who are willing to try Japanese vegetables.  We don’t do bagged salad mix.

About our box program

We provide seasonal veggies for weekly or biweekly pickup at our farm year-round, except for two weeks in late December. Your box will include a selection of seasonal vegetables, avoiding any products you prefer not to receive.

Please note we offer ON FARM PICKUP ONLY, at 961 Matheson Lake Park Road. We regret that we don’t currently have a way to drop off vegetables boxes in town.

Our produce is certified organic through Island Organic Producers Association, producer #810
