We want you! We are looking for a few good folks who would like to partner with us on the farm. Unlike shopping at the grocery, joining our CSA creates a direct partnership between us (the growers) and you (the eater). We are committed to growing the freshest, most flavorful and diverse fruits and vegetables for 18 weeks starting in May-September. Join and you will receive a weekly share of the harvest including all your favorite produce, and some you may not have had a chance to try before. Its a fun and delicious way to connect with your local food grower!
You buy produce from the farm for the growing season (starting late May-Sept) early in the year before the harvest. You take on the risks and rewards of our harvest season. Each share is fresh-picked for you! Once the season begins, simply pick up your share at a convenient pickup site in town each week.
Wash. Prep. Cook. Eat. Repeat!
A huge bag of produce with the most variety! Perfect for households of 1-5 folks who want to get as much of their produce from the farm. This share includes a variety of 8-10 different items per week. *The best value*
A little taste of the farm. Perfect for households of 1-2 folks who like to supplement with produce from the market. Share includes a variety of 5-6 different items per week.
MMG delivers shares to drop-off sites at member’s homes and businesses around town, so there is a good chance there is one nearby you. Each site has a day and time-frame for pick-up that you agree to as a member (see the Membership Form).
PICKUPS FOR STAUNTON: Thompson St, Gypsy Ave, or Sherwood Ave.
FISHERSVILLE: at the Farm on Indian Camp Ln.
WAYNESBORO: Maple Ave.

**DON’T SEE A SITE NEAR YOU? WANT TO HOST? WITH A MINIMUM OF 10 MEMBERS, WE CAN ADD A NEW SITE, CONTACT ASHLEY.**
If you are interested in a CSA share, but can’t get to a pick-up site, we will drop off shares at locations with 10 or more members! Wouldn’t it be great if you could conveniently pick-up your share at your workplace, your church, or community center? MMG works directly with a coordinator at each site to come up with a custom, convenient and consistent weekly drop-off time. If this something you’d like to do, email us. Please do not signup until the required minimum of 10 members per location is met.
No work is required on the farm as a regular CSA member, however for a few folks who have experience in the field and would like to ‘work off’ their share, we offer a free Workshare. There are allotted hours required for Large and Small shares that need to be fulfilled over the course of the season and usually in blocks of 3-5 hours. Workshare Members pick up shares with regular members and enjoy all the benefits of a regular share. While we welcome families to be involved, we are unable to allow children under the age of 15 to participate in a Workshare shift because of safety reasons. Please contact Ashley directly if interested in a Workshare and for more information.
Great way to try new things and it is always wonderful to eat fresh produce.
Loved the variety. Your shares were generous.
I am really glad we did it. My husband and I ate more vegetables than we normally would and we were able to provide lots of fresh veggies to our baby.
I really enjoyed eating fresh vegetables all spring/summer/fall as well as knowing I was helping out the local farming community. I was very pleased with my first year participating with a CSA and definitely would like to do it again next year.
I wanted local vegetables, plus it was nice knowing the Malcolms personally and where the veggies were coming from. The price is comparable to the grocery store so it was an easy decision.
