Long Island farmers credit CSA for success
publication date: Dec 1, 2008
Like many direct-market vegetable farmers, Matthew Kurek had no farming experience when he started farming. Thanks to a combination of hard work, great markets, and a bit of luck, he is now one of the success stories. His farm, Golden Earthworm Organic Farm in Jamesport, New York, has a CSA with 1,350 members, a farm stand, three farmers markets, and restaurant accounts. The farm supports two full-time farmers and provides seasonal jobs to more than 15 employees.
