This statewide CSA Fair was organized in partnership with Kentucky Department of Agriculture and Kentucky Proud, Bluegrass Farm to Table, Edible Kentucky Magazine, and Kentucky Horticulture Council. It was hosted on Facebook and connected over 55 Kentucky farmers with more than 900 attendees to share more about CSA (community supported agriculture) programs in their area.
