Stefanie Zaitz left New York City for her family farm in Pennsylvania to try to continue her family’s two-century-old agricultural tradition. She decided to turn the farm into a certified-organic CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). The CSA concept connects farmer to consumer by providing the farmer with money at the start of the growing season, when they need it most, providing the freshest possible food, and strengthening the local community.
Stefanie and her partners started with a single investor and a vegetable stand by the side of the road. Now, they’ve lined up at least ten investors for the next growing season: you could say they’re growing organically.
