Emergency Help Offered To Western Mass. Fruit Growers
An emergency fund has been re-opened to help western Massachusetts farmers whose fruit crops were damaged by an extreme cold snap in mid-February.
The Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture ( CISA) is offering zero-interest short term loans up to $10,000.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with CISA executive director Philip Korman.
