In 2012, 75 percent of the nation\’s 2.1 million farms sold less than $50,000 in agricultural products, but the cost to maintain a farm continues to increase. Local farmers turn to crowdsourcing.

We all know eating seasonal, local food is more healthy and better for the economy, but not everyone can afford trips to Whole Foods or farmers markets.
