In some areas Farmers are working with CSA's

Postby Lightening Bug » Mon May 11, 2020 12:16 pm

In some areas farmers working with CSA's are doing very well. Those with the CSA's hope demand for their farm products will continue to rise. Among other things people like the fact that the food is handled by fewer people.

From the article -

We had a reporter call here and say, 'We want to see some produce rotting in the field and milk going down the drains,' " said Judith Redmond, a longtime farmer in California's Capay Valley, northwest of Sacramento. "And I said, 'Well, actually, that's not what's happening in the Capay Valley.' "

Redmond, a founding partner of the 450-acre, organic Full Belly Farm, is busier than ever trying to ramp up production to meet soaring demand.

From California to Maine, the movement known as community supported agriculture (CSA) is booming. Members buy a share of a farm's often organic harvest that gets delivered weekly in a box. CSA programs almost everywhere report a surge in memberships and growing waiting lists.


Thought some of you would find this interesting too.

Take c are and be well. :D
