The local food scene has exploded in recent years, which means there’s a lot more local produce on dinner tables. It also means that during the spring season as small farms start ramping back up, they have to work a bit harder to attract new customers.

Community Supported Agriculture, or CSAs, allow subscribers to connect directly with a farm, and remain a mainstay for local farmers looking to latch on to consistent revenue.

Call it “peak farmers market.” Or maybe the plateau of “know your farmer.”

It is officially springtime, although it’s hard to believe with the cold snowy weather we’ve been having. Today it’s Horticulture Day on Talk of Iowa! We’ll talk about how this late winter weather will impact the planting season. We’ll also discuss how you can eat local, fresh food all year round through Community Supported Agriculture, or "CSA". And, we’ll be taking your questions.
