BBC World News Feature on Farm to Family

Here is the long version of the BBC World News story on Farm to Family that aired today on local food security in the time of COVID-19 featuring our farms Polyface FarmMountain View Farm Products, LLC and Cestari Yarns. Due to the breaking news peg on Ghislaine Maxwell they ran the short version – but hopefully people worldwide will be moved and inspired by what is happening in our local food system right here in Richmond, VA and Capitol Hill, Washington, DC! We are grateful to all of you, our members, who help support us, our staff, our farmers and other food partners. We are grateful to our Producer Lara Hartzenbusch and Cameraperson/Editor (and CSA member) Maxine Collins for the incredible story on us.

BBC World News to Revisit Farm to Family: Food Security in Covid-19

A few months back BBC World News contacted us to do a follow up on the story they did on us way back when we started in 2010. They wanted to know what effect Covid-19 had on food security in the local food system. We have received word that the story ¬†will air on Monday 6/29, barring world disasters. Here is how you can watch: BBC World TV (pay-cable) at 5pm EST and on PBS stations BBC World News (public access) at 630pm.. It may or may not be on their website, but I will share the producer’s video of it from Vimeo once she puts it up. What a long strange trip it has been. Thank you all for supporting us thru 11 years!
