It might still feel like winter outside but Massaro Community Farm staff is reporting for duty and they are busy planting crops that will yield the abundant produce for our subscription program of organic vegetables, herbs and flowers beginning in June.
Enrollment is now open for the farm’s 2018 Community Supported Agriculture seasonal subscription program. Signing up now is an essential aspect of the CSA model. By doing so you provide the necessary funds to support the farm operation, lighten the farm staff load during the height of the growing season, and enjoy a weekly bountiful harvest throughout the season. Check out our website for 10- and 20-week subscription rates and options. $675 full share/$375 half share.
When you secure your spot in Massaro’s 2018 CSA, you join other like-minded people around the country who are committed to:
- eating healthy foods and preparing them for their families;
- supporting farmers;
- buying local;
- investing in community.
Download a registration form from our website or sign up online for the Massaro Farm CSA to get our certified organic produce, June through October, grown and harvested daily at Massaro Community Farm. On farm pick up, delivery and (NEW!) flexible season options available.
Additionally, on Sunday May 20th, 2018 from 12:00pm-5:00pm the farm will host its annual Celebrate Spring festival. This unofficial opening of the season will include the sale of organic vegetable seedlings, flowers and perennials. The day will also include a lineup of workshops, kid-friendly activities, a Maypole dance, food for purchase and music. Entrance is free; certain workshops may have a suggested donation.
