Community supported agriculture is solutions-based

While the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on supply lines, the unexpected silver lining may be a greater awareness of locally sourced commodities.

Still open for business, SWFL small farms are coming together in this COVID-19 economy. While primary sales to food service and niche markets have plummeted, innovation has sprouted.

Watching as the food shelves of big retailers sat empty, these entrepreneurs moved to online sales and collaborated to offer each other’s food products to clientele for curbside pickup or delivery.

Learn how to support SWFL farmers by visiting Eat Local Lee or the FDACS’s Farm to You websites.
