Did you know that Grant Family Farms runs the largest CSA in the country with over 3,000 members?! How great is that?! Antonio, our ever diligent Director of Photography, also came to Harvestival and filmed the entire event! We’ll be making into a short video for their website and will share it with everyone soon…
