How many people does a CSA feed?
That’s always a tricky question, because every person has different diets and eating habits.
We say one CSA share will feed approximately two adults. Those are two adults that are eating salads at lunch and dinner and enjoying carrot sticks and open faced tomato sandwiches for snacks.
The farmers at Natural Collective CSA go through the equivalent of one to two CSA shares individually. So if you live for veg and enjoy a dinner of a giant salad with homemade herb dressing, you may find you can eat one CSA share all by yourself.
Conversely, if you treat vegetables as a side or just a garnish, you may find that one CSA share can feed a family of four to six people.
