Community Supported Agriculture in Wyoming Featured in Wyoming PBS Documentary
October 30, 2013
(Press release) — Wyoming PBS producer Stefani Smith explores Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) in the next Farm to Fork Wyoming episode which airs Friday, November 8 at 8 p.m. on Wyoming PBS.
Community Supported Agriculture is not new to Wyoming, but few of us know the thrill it offers — a weekly box of surprises, straight from the farm spring through fall.
Maggie McAllister makes this obscurely named enterprise work in Daniel, Wyoming. Painted Sage Farms is a biodynamic family operation, offering everything from pigs to parsley, delivering a weekly box of produce to shareholders and selling surplus farm goods at farmers markets, grocers and restaurants June through mid-October. Not bad at over 7,100 ft. elevation.
This episode also delves in to the art of fermenting vegetables with Diane Saenz, UW Extension educator. Saenz shares a creative and simple approach to fermentation and its many virtues.
Farm to Fork Wyoming is a series that crosses Wyoming to learn about this burgeoning “direct to market” economy. Viewers meet eclectic thinkers and ingenious ranchers, growers and herders, learn from experts around the state about food and agricultural trends, and meet local chefs and market places where this bounty is shared.
