Tony Schultz and Kat Becker, Stoney Acres Farm
Friday II – 2 p.m.
In this workshop we will use our farm as a starting point, with several other case studies, to explore the challenges and benefits of integrating CSA with other markets. We will talk about our own successes and challenges with farmers markets, direct meat/egg and maple syrup sales, and developing a weekly pizza on the farm night. While the driving force of our farm remains CSA our experiences show that these other venues feed into and enrich CSA while increasing economic security, attracting a more diverse set of eaters, and providing lower labor alternatives to adding value to a vegetable operation.
