What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes, either legally or spiritually, the community's farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production.

If for some reason they are not able to get you your share one week (due to a natural disaster, road closure, etc), they will gladly increase your share size another week to make up for it! They will always do our best to figure out how to get you your food every week. Pick-up at the farm is always an option too.

What will I get? Each box of produce and bag of fruit will vary from week to week depending on regional and local seasonal availability. The size of the box is three gallons and approximately supplies two adults with veggies for most of the week. If you cook (and like vegetables or are committed to improving your diet), you will have no problem using your box. The boxes come with a flyer with recipe ideas and other food information. Boxes are $22.50 weekly or $24.50 every other month. Fruit and eggs are optional at $10/bag and $6.50/dozen respectively.
How do I start? Call, or email us, the week before you would like to start. There is a $15 non-refundable, one-time start fee. MM will set up an ongoing subscription for you, which can be changed via your online account, or by contacting them. Deliveries are on Tuesday and you leave out your empty box so it can be exchanged for a full one. You may receive deliveries as often as you like and may stop and start for any reason (vacation, summer garden, work schedule, etc.). If you need to cancel a delivery, you can do so online, or by calling, or emailing a week ahead to receive a credit towards future deliveries
