It’s Harvest Time for farms all over Connecticut, and that means a growing number of small farms that work on the “community supported agriculture” model. In CSAs, members share the risk of a volatile New England growing season, and share in the bounty as well.
But good farmland is hard to come by in our crowded little state, and some farms have to struggle to survive on the land - while some farmers have to look for a new piece of land to grow on every year.
This hour, where we live, a live broadcast from Holcomb Farm in West Granby – talking with the people who grow our food.
We'll also talk about this farm's mission of getting food to the needy.
