Community Farm to Start up on Nantucket
(June 5, 2014)

As of 2011, Nantucket County had the highest median home prices in the nation. Land is at a premium—which makes starting a farm on the island extremely expensive. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth talks with a Nantucket non-profit working to make it easier to grow food on the island. Their latest project is the development of a community farm, where beginning growers can start a business without having to purchase land for very little overhead cost. You can learn more about the concept on Elspeth’s blog, Diary of a Locavore.
