Former FairShare staffer Julie Garrett has partnered with WORT-FM in Madison to create mini audio farm profiles. As of Oct. 1, 15 of FairShare’s endorsed farms have been covered.
In each episode of 5 Minutes on the Farm, available on iTunes and Stitcher, you’ll hear the farmers’ story about how they came to farming and what’s unique about their particular operation. You can really get a feel for the farmer’s personality and their farm. (If you check them out on WORT’s website, you can also watch a scrolling photo gallery as you listen. Here’s an example.) It’s one more tool to assist you in selecting your CSA farm.
If you visit 5 Mins on Facebook, you can see photos with excerpts from the farmer interviews for a deeper experience.
You can sign up now for fall and extended season shares. If you’re new to CSA, a fall share is an easy way to try out CSA and qualify for your 2016 CSA health insurance rebate.
