2014 Sign up starting February 2014,
As of March 7 2014, shares available! any changes will be indicated here.
18 shares May - December (1-2 off weeks depending upon weather conditions)
Weekly share averaged about 10# last season with 7-9 items in each share.
To keep the CSA manageable I offer only 50 shares this season. Historically I have had approximately 15-20 shares available for new members each season. \\shares now available for new members. I deliver to specific neighborhoods in NW DC and Montgomery County so I select new members close to my established routes. On farm pick up is also available in Brandywine, Maryland.
We are a small diversified organic farm located just 20 miles south of Washington DC near Waldorf, MD. Our primary crops are seasonal market vegetables. In 2013 Eggs are purchased from a neighbor hood farm. We also raise pastured (but not organic) chicken and turkey for meat. The CSA includes produce, possibly eggs but not poultry.
We provide 18 shares between May and November. Shares are $25 per week with a $7 per week delivery surcharge, reduced one week this yead to accommodate vacation customers vacation off week. We do not require members to work on the farm thus are more of a subscription vs. classic CSA operation. However, members are welcome to visit and work when they would like to. Members are continuously accepted until all shares are sold,
We DO NOT offer half shares and recommend that you alternate weeks with another family if you think a whole share would be too much.
Generally a share is adequate for two good vegetable eaters or a family of four for several meals. There is usually never enough strawberries and too many eggplants or peppers or squash or whatever crop is overly prolific each season, it varies year by year.

I've been a GFF member for 2 years now, going into my third. We love it! The vegetables are great, and Mike has always made an effort to personalize it when requested (I've gotten extra radishes for a but of extra money, for example).... [more]

2011 Season Review and Plans for 2012
Dear CSA Members,This season was particularly challenging due to the climatic extremes experienced during just a few weeks that impacted a large portion of the season. A relatively hot dry spring and very wet August impacted many crops that were planted and maintained in a timely manner but failed to produce a sizable harvest.... [more]
