R & B Organics Expanding
May 31, 2016 11:22AM
R & B Organics is expanding their Consumer Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and are ready to sign up members now. A CSA program is where participants purchase a share of the farm and receive the bounty of the harvests. R & B Organics has been growing vegetables in Brevard County since 2010 and recently signed an agreement with Field Manor, the historic 19th century waterfront home located on north Merritt Island, to grow certified organic vegetables and fruit on a portion of the property.
“We plan to have a wide assortment of vegetables available for people to come and pick themselves,” said Dan and Blake Jameson of R & B Organics. “Plans are in the works for a corn or sunflower maze in the fall, and we should have pick-yourself strawberries next spring.”
At present, R & B Farms is located in Melbourne. The produce is currently offered at the Brevard County Farmers Market at Wickham Park on Thursday and the Ft. Pierce Farmers Market on Saturday.
To sign up as a CSA member for the 2016-17 crops or for more information, visit Facebook.com/RBOrganicFarm/ or call 321-243- 0719.
