Farmers from around the area gathered today in preparation of a Community Supported Agriculture event next weekend.
The Meet Your Farmers CSA Fair will feature more than a dozen local farmers who provide shares to their communities.
Each farm will provide information to people to allow them to sign up in the spring for a share of the summer products.
This year the fair will also include children’s events, taste tests, and a raffle basket worth a hundred dollars of local products.
“It’s been organized this year as sort of a celebration of local food and the supportive– it’s a unique collaboration between eaters and farmers and so it’s kind of a neat way to being everybody together to talk just about these programs and how they’re different and how they’re exciting,” said Clayton Carter, the owner and operator at Fail Better Farm in Etna.
The Meet Your Farmers CSA Fair will be held next Saturday, March 1st, from 1-4 PM at the Maine Holistic Center in Bangor.
