On Friday, August 6th Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro stopped by the farm during CSA subscriber pick up. She met Farmer Steve and was presented with a basket of fresh produce, representing exactly what the subscribers were picking up that day.
In addition to Rosa we were very pleased to have Woodbridge’s First Selectman, Ed Sheehy, representatives from the USDA NRCS, and Rosa’s staff members from New Haven and Washington D.C.
Farmer Steve and the Massaro Community Farm board of directors gave her a tour of the farm demonstrating the improvements made with the monies she helped us obtain. They include fencing around the cultivated fields, suitable farm equipment, and a powerful irrigation system.
