One Acre Farm- wonderful experience
By: Erin Esch Pereira    (Jan 5, 2015)

The quality and variety of produce is fantastic. Each week during the season we received beautiful produce from One Acre Farm. Farmer Mike offers helpful updates, instructions for cooking with uncommon produce, and offers fun and informative farm tours. The pick-up location and time on Capitol Hill is very convenient. I very highly endorse One Acre Farm. The produce is among some of the best I've ever had.

One Acre Farm -- A Veggie Lover's Delight
By: Cindy Taylor    (Dec 29, 2014)

There's nothing better than farm fresh vegetables to the table! I thought I was a veggie lover, but since joining One Acre Farm I have been delighted with the varieties of vegetables that are not usually available at super markets or farmer markets. I especially loved the different varieties of broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers. Who knew all those varieties existed...thank you, Farmer Mike for sharing them with us. I also enjoy the farm tours and all the little extras that One Acre Farm provides to the community. As a member for over 4 years, I can't wait to eat what the 2015 season brings!

5 years and going strong
By: Andrew Redd    (Dec 28, 2014)

I have been a member of the One Acre Farms CSA for five years now, and it keeps getting better and better. Michael's a great guy and is constantly trying to improve the experience for us members. There are also lots of options for people who want to try out a CSA for a month before you sign up for the whole year.

Agreed! Farmer Mike aims to please, and works really hard at both farming and understanding what we like.

Great CSA!
By: Gene Hunt    (Dec 27, 2014)

My wife and I have been members now for two seasons, and we have been very happy with it. The produce is always good, and last year in particular there was a lot of it! Michael is great -- dedicated and full of good information. Take the Farm Tour if you get a chance!

Great selection and dedication
By: Crystal Kirk    (Dec 22, 2014)

This is the best CSA I have used. I like that we get a weekly supply of fresh produce. The amount of produce received and the dedication this farmer has is the best around. From the farm tours, to the delivery to our office and to the cost... this farmer knows what he is doing. I can not wait for next year, thanks again Farmer Mike!!

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
By: Scott Watson    (Dec 5, 2013)

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.
