Our intern Lenna and I are looking forward to visiting Vermont Valley Community Farm tomorrow for a CRAFT farmer training field day on Post Harvest Handling.
Vermont Valley is an organic CSA serving Madison, WI, and provides 2,100 shares to customers (that's 2,100 boxes of weekly vegetables!).
I love visiting these farms as part of our farm membership in CRAFT (Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training). If you are an organic specialty crop farmer and have a CRAFT in your area, join! It's worth it.
