It’s no secret that I LOVE talking about CSAs. I wrote two weeks ago about how to know if a CSA (community supported agriculture) is right for you, and about my personal experiences with a CSA.
This week’s CSA spotlight is on Muddy Fingers Farm in Hector, NY. My friend Rachel generously provided her opinions and experiences.
What CSA do you use and how did you hear of it?
I used Muddy Fingers Farm in Hector. I heard about it at a local “green living” expo a few years ago.
How many weeks does it last? What is the approximate cost?
It’s $400 for a share for 1-2 people (though it was more than enough for my husband, toddler, & me). It goes from the beginning of June through the end of October.
Is it delivery or pick-up?
Pick up at any of 3 weekly farmer’s markets in the area (or at the farm).
How do you find the selection? Too much of one thing? Not enough of another?
I of course wished they had more fruit, more spinach, salad greens, etc. (they had a lot of kale & swiss chard which I don’t care for too much). But they also offered farmer ground organic flour, dried beans, a nice selection of herbs, pumpkins in the fall… so overall it was a great selection. I recommend them!
Any other fun facts you’d like to share. . .
Hector, NY is on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, about 10 miles north of Watkins Glen.
