Reviews for: One Acre Farm
The Ultimate Bang for your Buck
By: (Sep 25, 2014)
When my husband and I tried a CSA through LivingSocial/Groupon before, we were disappointed with the produce, but we were still interested in being a part of a locally-sourced CSA. We found exactly what we were looking for in One Acre Farm. Mike Protas's passion for his work is so evident in everything he does. He makes pick-up as easy as possible, his correspondence is frequent (but not too frequent), and the product he delivers is terrific. I love the variety, the amount, and the quality of the produce each week. Sometimes I feel like we should be paying much more for what we're getting, and I'm so happy to support a local farm. One Acre truly has that community/neighborly feel. I can't say enough good things.

One Acre Farm weekly CSA delivery to my workplace was filled with fresh, healthy, washed beautiful vegetables. We received a huge variety of organically farmed food every week. Farmer Mike sent emails detailing the contents and progress at the farm. Great experience.
completely satisfied first year CSA experience

I agonized about joining a CSA for years before I discovered Farmer Mike. Now I wish I had joined when I moved to Germantown. I picked up my share at the farm and Mike was always patient with all of my questions. Sometimes he would even pull a book out of his truck to show me pictures and look up extra information. I enjoyed picking up at the farm and meeting some of the other members. I learned just as much about cooking new-to-me vegetables from them as from Mike. I was able to take a half hour break from work to drive to the farm and pick up the veggies. Even on bad weather days I always found it a treat to visit his farm. I found the produce to be high quality week after week. Mike's experience and care definitely shows in the final product. I feel that I got much more than my money's worth out of the food and the experience. My favorite single item has to be the sungold tomatoes. Amazing! I will be signing up again next year.

produce from one acre farm is fantastically fresh
it is obvious the veggies are planted grown with care and distributed with pride.
all veggies are clean and packed to ensure freshness and maximize storage
the variety of produce is a vegetarian cook's delight. and the fairshare csa coalition cookbook, farm-fresh and fast has some fabulous easy recipes.
i would sign up for a lifetime membership if possible.

I've belonged to several different CSA's over the past few years and this is, by far, the best one. The produce was fresh and delicious. And Farmer Mike consistently delivers variety and quantity on a weekly basis. I will not only be back next year, but have convinced several others at my Company to switch from other CSA's to this one. I am looking forward to next year!!
Absolutely Wonderful CSA

We joined Once Acre Farm's CSA a little late in the season, and Farmer Mike was more than accommodating to us as latecomers. Throughout the fall, we were astounded by the diversity of offerings, as well as the sheer bounty of the produce each week. Everything was completely fresh, and the CSA offers a range of choices so you can customize your order. We loved the "freebies" each week, which ranged from tomatoes to garlic to sweet potatoes. Mike is very communicative as well, offering heads-up by email about upcoming crops, cooking and storage tips, and general farm news. Some especially thoughtful touches were the pre-washed greens, free produce bags, and free cookbook that came with our membership. We're already missing the CSA and can't wait to renew our membership (on time!) next year!
Great experience with One Acre Farm

We've been members of a few CSAs in the past, and I would definitely rate One Acre among the better ones. Mike's a really kind person who takes the time to get to know his subscribers. The produce was great and his pricing is, frankly, amazing. We'll be back next season for sure.
First year for us was great!
By: Gene Hunt (Nov 20, 2013)
We just finished our first year with OAF, and it was great -- we'll definitely sign up again next year. Variety is good each week, especially as the season progresses, and the produce was all in excellent shape. We ordered a full share, and it is just my wife and I (well, and a small baby, but he doesn't each much yet). The weekly share was a lot for the two of us, but with some planning, we ended up wasting very little of it, and we enjoyed it all. I don't think we've ever eaten so healthy in our lives.
