| One of Pennsylvania's
main areas of economics is agriculture.
Pennsylvania is America's fourth largest producer of food products.
Of most recent interest has been in the areas of natural food
production including the growing of all natural meats and
produce. The reasons are many that many American's are now
taking a greater interest in their diets, the effects of
additives, preservatives, where there food comes from and how
their diets affect their health.
Enter the rise of all natural, organic and other farming
practices that are becoming increasingly popular including rapid
growth of CSA's or Community Supported Agriculture with more
springing up everyday, these groups are formed to unite buyers
and sellers of locally grown farm products.
