Just as I have done the past two years, I spent some time this summer visiting small local farms and farm-related training events, mostly for the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project. This year I got to revisit a few of the farmers that I had met in previous years, this time at their new, larger farms. You may recognize a few people from both my portfolio and some of my previous blogs. One couple that I met in Dracut, Massachusetts, last year now has a farm in Groton, as well as a new addition to their family! Congratulations!
By way of showing how the food progresses from the farm to the table, I also visited the new packing station for the Lowell CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture project. Clearly a growing and well-run organization.
