“Subscription Farming” Taking Off In Mother Lode

Sonora, CA — In more parts of the Mother Lode, consumers and farmers now participate in a system known as “subscription farming.”

Reports indicate, residents pay a fee to a farmer, who provides them with a box of fresh fruit and vegetables each week.

While customers benefit from a regular supply of fresh produce, participants say the program can be of particular interest to young farmers, by providing them with a steady cash flow.

Subscription farming works particularly well in California, where farmers can harvest year round.
