WHAT SIZE SHARE SHOULD I GET? A small share is suited for a single person or couple; A medium share suits a single person who eats a lot of veggies or a couple; A large share is suited for a couple that cooks nightly and brings leftovers to works for lunch, or a family. If you follow the recommended daily vegetable intake, 1 person should eat 6 to 8 items PER WEEK. Thus, a small share is great for 1 person.
PICK YOUR OWN! CSA members get access to pick your own crops on the farm! Most of the pick your own crops are "free items". Strawberries, peas, and cherry tomatoes are crops that do count as an item. Flowers, green beans, basil, parsley, and other herbs are "free items" (you get these in addition to your CSA share), but these do have a recommended quantity to ensure there is enough for all. Pick your won hours are during Friday and Saturday pick up times.
What Our Clients Are Saying
"I've been a huge fan of Mighty Food Farm since I joined their CSA three years ago. Mighty Food Farm provides an abundant supply of delicious, nutritious vegetables right through February. Unlike many other CSA's, MFF members are able to pick and choose from a wide variety of vegetables each week. My health improved dramatically when I began to get most of my food from MFF. I highly recommend membership in their CSA!" —Kathleen Breault, CNM, New York
