Gentle Giant Farm C.S.A at DMFM
Gentle Giant Farm has C.S.A. available at the Downtown Milford Farmers Market for the 2018 Season.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial relationship between a community and its farmers. Participants, also known as members or shareholders, provide advance funding for the farmer in exchange for a weekly share of produce during the growing season. CSAs provides crucial support to farmers outside of the peak growing season. It also offers members a unique relationship with their local farm and their food.
Custom Summer CSA Farm Shares
All of our CSA farm shares are 100% customizeable for 2018. This means that you get exactly what you want when you want it and in the quantities you want. Once the CSA starts you will get a weekly email from us with what we have chosen for that weeks farm share. If you like what we have picked you do not need to take any further action. However if there is something you want more of or something you want less of you can change it for your share. Additionally you will be able to add on items above what we have chosen in case you need extras of any given item for a special recipe or event.
Our goal for the farm share is to provide a variety of staple vegetables along with a small selection of more unusual produce. We also include our value added products (marinara sauce and crushed tomatoes) made for us by local companies with our produce. We have three share sizes in 2018: small, medium and large. The medium is the size of our shares in years past, good for families or individuals who eat lots of produce. Large is good for those who eat mainly a plant based diet or have a large family that eats produce regulary every week. Small will be good for individuals or households that eat a limited amount of produce. That said, share sizes and items vary with the seasons and all items are not available every week. CSA membership is a commitment to share both the rewards and the risks of farming, crop availability and variety cannot be guaranteed.
