What do Jewish farms and sustainability have in common? As it turns out, the answer is a whole lot.
Welcome to the Pearlstone Center Farm, an educational farm with a foundation of hard work and steadfast faith. This profile was filmed on Pearlstone's weekly CSA harvest day.
Josh Rosenstein, farm director, explains that CSA is short for "Community Supported Agriculture" and it is a subscription in which members pay to receive a weekly stock of produce from the farm.
After interviewing Josh and speaking with a number of the farm apprentices, one consistent comment became a theme: Farms like Pearlstone are valuable because they educate people about where their food comes from.
Not everyone can imagine the hands (or lack of hands) that do the harvesting, milling, preparing, packaging, shipping, and stocking necessary in order for their favorite cereal to go from seedling to spoonful of breakfast.
