Beyond Organic Radio: Buying Direct from Farmers
Broadcast date: Wednesday, May 25, 2005

“I enjoy your program immensely and look forward to the next one!”- Tony P., Spokane, WA 

This Wednesday’s radio show – Buying Direct from Farmers

One of the coolest food trends suffers from a horrible name!

Welcome to Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), which combines the freshness of a farmers’ market with the convenience of delivery to a neighborhood drop-off point. There are an estimated 1,700 CSAs across the United States, serving about 340,000 families.

CSAs deliver a weekly basket of fresh produce, fruit and often meat, dairy and eggs, introduce, help teach you how to cook new (sometimes unusual) produce, and through a pay-in- advance system, provide farmers with capital to invest at the beginning of the growing season – which is critical especially to small scale, specialty and organic farmers.

This Wednesday, join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we find out exactly how CSA’s work, meet some of the people involved and find out you can connect with a farmer in your own area.
