Farmer Don from Bootstrap Farm was on the Tulsa news the other night for an interview on Oklahoma’s drought.
The drought is one of the reasons it was important for us to join a CSA. A guaranteed subscription for local food protects the farmer in cases of drought, hail, flood, or other sources of income loss. In this case, Farmer Don was able to buy a larger irrigation pump and know that he’ll be able to pay for it. Here’s hoping we get some rain soon!
