We are proud to support A Farm Less Ordinary!
At the heart of who we are as a company is our local community. We believe being involved and making a difference in our community is essential. After all, we don’t just work here – we live here and raise our kids here.
In addition to the other community initiatives we take part in, MRE|AP is proud to support A Farm Less Ordinary (AFLO). After hearing about the fantastic and impactful work that our agent Greg Masucci and his wife Maya were doing at their nonprofit farm, we could not help but get involved.
If you are not familiar with AFLO, the local nonprofit “provides employment and a welcoming community to people with developmental and intellectual disabilities, while sustainably growing organic food for the metropolitan DC area.”
To distribute the produce that’s grown on the farm, AFLO offers a membership to their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. CSA members can pick up their “crop boxes” in central locations for a minimum of 15 weeks over the growing season. These boxes will be packed full of 5-7 varieties of whatever organic vegetables are being harvested that week – enough for at least a family of four.
During the growing season, our Middleburg office location will serve as one of the CSA pickup locations. In addition to the locally grown organic “less ordinary” produce in their CSA box, members of AFLO’s CSA will find helpful recipe cards included in their boxes (courtesy of MRE|AP). In the fall, our agents will rally together for a construction project at the farm.
