Back in April I attended an event on farmer-led CSA’s where I met intriguing, moustachioed farmer Davon Friend. He gave a talk about the journey he and his brother have embarked upon to set up a meat and dairy CSA. In my experience CSA’s are usually about growing veg, and so this seemed a pretty unique project. I wanted to find out more and jumped at the chance when Davon invited me to pop by if I was ever in the area.

The really successfuly CSAs are those with experienced and skilled growers and farmers at their hearts. Whether the initial idea comes from the producer or the community doesn't in the end matter, but farmer led CSAs can succeed more quickly as you can cut down on some of the heartache and painful learning that community initiatives sometimes go through as they take on a new piece of land and learn what to do with it.
