What Is Our Food Box Program?
Steel Pony Farm’s food box program is a weekly or bi-weekly grocery service that specializes in bringing locally sourced, high quality food to your door. Our product list emphasizes small and local producers, products made with sustainable practices, and food that tastes unlike anything you’ve ever tried.
Each week, members shop our list of 150+ products to restock their kitchens. We make shopping your values easy and convenient.
In addition to Red Deer, we are now delivering to Sylvan Lake, Blackfalds and Lacombe. Home delivery is an option in all of these communities.
Steel Pony Farm focuses on growing its produce in a sustainable and ethical way that contributes to its incredible flavour and superior nutritional value. We provide your family with healthy food and in turn you support a small family farm.

What Your Neighbours Say...
We started with Steel Pony Farm last summer and we absolutely loved it! The produce was such great quality and it felt great supporting someone locally. We were also introduced to new produce we hadn't tried before and learned some amazing recipes. The best part was our kids got excited about vegetables! Our oldest loved tagging along to do the pickup and insisted on helping prepare dinner with the fresh ingredients. It was a no brainer to sign up again and we can't wait for our first lot of veggies!
The best decision I have ever made! I really enjoy the vegetable that I am getting. Fresh, yummy and excellent variety. It definitely make my cooking more interesting and I am using and eating veggies I would never thought to integrate into my eating habits. And the GARLIC! The best ever! Mike is an amazing and hard working person and you can totally see it in his work. Support your local farmer! It is worth it!
I love fennel. I love red kuri squash. Love fresh garlic. I love beets more than I ever realized. Nothing matches abundant fresh vegetables, from just a few kilometres from the house. So much more rewarding than cruising the produce department and wondering what to cook for supper. Steel Pony Farm offers great, affordable value and is an important part of our pantry.
We started last year and loved the produce, the pick up times and the ease with which this all took place. I loved getting new recipes and new foods that I would not normally buy. The produce is so fresh and great tasting. We signed up again this year and can not wait for the new season to begin thanks Mike!!:)
