Agricultural initiatives are a huge benefit to the local Somerset County economy. What is a CSA might you ask? Community Supported Agriculture offers their members regular offerings of incredibly fresh produce.
Each NOFA chapter dedicates programming to aspiring and just-starting farmers, collectively referred to as Beginner Farmers. These programs have been able to explore the needs of Beginner Farmers in their states and expand their programs to better support and serve those needs. Particular emphasis is placed on improving Beginner Farmers’ access to education and peer support and networking. If you’re looking for more information on farm tours, social events, and more information on how to get started in farming, NOFA is a great go-to resource!
