Last year, Passable posted an interview with Natalie Smith, a farmer working in Roberts Island, Yarmouth County. Since our last interview, Yarmouth has found a permanent home for its farmers market, and Smith’s CSA has grown from 17 families to over sixty. We checked in with her recently.
So how many people do you have in the CSA now, both as buyers and producers?
This year so far we have signed up 65 families with half of them to be supplied 52 weeks of the year with veggies and meats! We have 8 main producers with vegetables, meats and fish and have added some others that will provide some of their surplus vegetables based on them having advantageous locations to grow certain crops such as tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers and eggplants!
