We had a 22 member CSA foodbox program this year, and I would consider our farm to be practicing permaculture. Half the boxes were for singles and couples, and the other half were families. I'd estimate that would be about 60 people.
We provided an average of 7 items to our customers for 18 weeks on about an acre of cultivated land, as well as wild edibles.
We also sold extra produce to restaurants and had a weekly table at a nearby farmers market for about 14 weeks. And of course we ate a lot of veggies from the garden ourselves.
We probably could've been able to support more than the 22 members but wanted to start small as it was our first year on this farm.
