WAYH About Local Farming And CSAs
Chris KurthThis is the week that the power dynamic shifts on Massachusetts vegetable Farms. That is how Sienna Farms owner Chris Kurth describes the start of the planting season. For the past three long winter months, the farmers have been in charge: constructing their crop plan for the coming year, deciding what new equipment to purchase, essentially playing out the entire year in their minds. All that changes once the planting begins. From there on out, the vegetables tell the farmers what to do. It’s a welcome power shift, however, and there is excitement abound on Kurth’s Siena farm this week as they began seeding in the greenhouse. This year, they will devote more acreage than ever before to vegetables for their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)—a subscription program where people invest in the farm and in turn receive fresh veggies each week for the entire growing season. We talk with Siena Farms owner Chris Kurth—a.k.a. Farmer Chris—about what he is hearing about the coming year on the farm and CSAs here in New England.
