#120 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs
Pennington, NJ, Bedford Hills, NY and Ranger, GA
Community Supported Agricultural programs (also known as CSAs) are sweeping the country as a way for consumers to have access to the freshest, local and organically grown produce and more. For those that don't have the time or space to grow their own, it is the perfect partnership between the farmer and consumer. We visit the oldest and largest certified organic CSA programs in New Jersey and Georgia as well as another program in New York that has developed into a sort of an organic buyers club. Viewers learn how CSAs work, how to find one in their area and the benefits of being a part of this "growing" community. Chef Nathan uses farm fresh goat cheese featured in the episode to create a decadent cheesecake.
