Growing With Your Local Farmer
Do you know who grows your food?
Nigel Walker, founder of Eatwell Farm, explains why it’s important to know your farmer and support their livelihood. Every farm tells a story. Knowing your farmer traces an arc from the soil to your table. One way you can build a relationship with your farmer is by joining a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. In this locally-based economic model, community members support a farm by paying it directly for a share of its seasonal bounty. As Nigel Walker says, “When you give your money to a local farmer, that money goes to the local economy.”
