No time like the present to sign up to become a member of the Many Hands Organic Farm CSA. This will be our 29th season and we know how to do it! New this year we are offering 3 share sizes during the Summer CSA season as well as the Late Fall Share during the month of November. Depending on how often you cook at home, how you consume fresh vegetables, whether you preserve food throughout the season, and the number of people in your household, you can choose a Large, Medium, or Small share. Each year you get more for your money- as the quality of our vegetables continues to improve; the quantity is generous too. We don’t think you can beat the taste, quality, and nutrition of our nutrient dense produce, which we continue to improve as we focus on plant and soil health. You will receive 22 to 26 weeks of vegetables, fruit, and herbs.
Here are a handful of testimonials from our CSA shareholders–
“While we have enjoyed participating in this CSA for a long time now, I think this was the most bountiful year we’ve experienced. And not just quantity, but variety and quality, too. I can’t even eat tomatoes from anywhere else anymore – I’m so spoiled with the delicious ones we’ve received from you the last few months. Last night we had the best butternut squash, the night before I had a wonderful soup with the most delicioius Asian cabbage, carrots, celery and leeks… In fact every week this past season, we have felt the same – loving it all!
I haven’t had a chance to try the sunchokes yet, but I’m planning on roasting them later this week.
Thank you for all of your hard work – I couldn’t be happier!” Becky
“Just a couple ideas. Curly Kale can easily be frozen. Strip it from the stem, put it on a cookie sheet in a single layer and place in the freezer. In about an hour place Kale into a plastic sealable bag. Works like a charm. Beet greens and chard make a wonderful pesto for pasta or fish or anything. Just use greens instead of basil. Parsley works well also. I even use carrot fonds for a pesto.
Once again, we are sooo happy we found you. Have a good week.”
“I just wanted to take this moment to thank all of you for what you do. I agree that organic farming is HARD work with little return. I think it must be in your blood. Regardless, we LOVE our share and that we are assured that out produce is 100% ORGANIC for 6 months of the year. Your hard work and care doesn’t go unnoticed. I will continue to tell others about the farm.” Karen
“Thank you for another amazing week of produce. We actually took our share with us when we went away last week and ate tons of delicious veggies the whole time.” Emily
“Absolutely beautiful! Getting this CSA share has been one of our best decisions along with getting the fresh eggs. Thanks for all that you do.” Rich
“I should say weekly applause. This season to date has been spectacular! I know it’s a holiday weekend but I am so full of food appreciation and happiness that I’m bursting! In fact, some mushrooms and green pepper in the saute pan now. Eggs going in later. Tomatoes at the very end. . . .. What’s an email without a comment about the lovely fresh eggs? The girls are doing a great job as always. Hope you have a Labor Day weekend that’s just what you want it to be. Know that we CSA subscribers appreciate all the labor and love that goes into the MHOF offerings.” Nancy
“I’ve totally changed my diet to clean eating and can’t wait to enjoy more this summer.” Caroline
“Wow we are enjoying the produce. The chard was both beautiful and tasty.” Linda
“Thank you so much Julie! It was so beautiful this week’s share. The produce was amazing and fresh. Thank you so much for everything.” Alma
“Your produce is delicious, and I feel very healthy after I eat it, especially since I’m getting a lot of kale this year! Thanks for all that you’re doing at Many Hands Organic Farm.” Cathie
“I hope you are doing well and enjoying your season. I’ve been thinking about everything I learned from you during my time as a working shareholder as I am spending my summer working on this tiny farm that we’ve created on the Cape. I think about Jason every time I skip weeding the vetch. Speaking of weeding, I think one of the most important things I picked up from you is to be sure to stop everything once and awhile to look back at what has been accomplished. This is important in weeding, faming in general, and life too!
Anyway, I just wanted to express my gratitude for you and your wisdom and the work that you do.Thank you!” Cory
“Thank you for the weekly bounty! I’m so glad you reached out and brought us back into your fold. I have really enjoyed learning new ways to use these gifts. I was surprised how much I enjoyed sautéed Lamb’s Quarters (with garlic scape) and the berries were amazing!! Every day kale and chard are enjoyed in our morning smoothies. And now I have my husband eating so many more veggies. Last weekend he finally admitted he liked squash. But I think it’s because it was your squash, so sweet and perfect, that I steamed with parsley for a change. Amazing summer side! Keep up what I know is hard and frustrating work. But you’re doing great! Thank you.” Caroline
