Middle Branch Farm "gets it"
By: Daniel Stringfield (Mar 13, 2012)
Middle Branch Farm gets Who, What, When, Where, Why and How, and that's why I plan on coming back to their CSA from now on.
Who) Roger and his family take the time to get to know who the families are that support the CSA and make you feel like a friend being welcomed into their home.
What) They understand the products they grow and raise at the farm and have introduced my family to things we've never tried or never liked before.
When) They do a better job of spacing out plantings and harvests so that the selection of produce is available for as long as possible instead of all of one type harvested all at once.
Where) I like that Middle Branch Farm offers local pickup locations in addition to multiple times for on-farm pickup. I personally like visiting the farm each week and welcome the drive, but having the pickups spaced out makes it easier so you aren't fighting for parking or elbow to elbow being rushed through the pickup time so that everyone can get their share within the same few hour window.
Why) It was pretty obvious after talking to Roger that he does what he does because he understands that it is important. He represents my interests in taking care of my family and the environment around us.
How) Last but not least, they know how to run an organic farm, as evidenced by their tasty produce, meats, eggs, and maple syrup.
