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
