Bike the Barns is FairShare CSA Coalition’s largest fundraiser. Proceeds from the ride benefit our organization and our Partner Shares program, which provides financial assistance to eligible households to increase access to CSA shares.

The event features CSA farm tours, gourmet local food, craft libations, on-farm activities and live music. Join us as we bike and bus to make sure all of our neighbors have access to fresh, healthy food!

Where is it?

Start and end location for the ride this year will be announced in May, 2019. Participants will visit 3-4 farms along the route, depending on which registration option you choose. More details about last year’s bike ride can be found on the Route page.

Not into biking, but still want to visit the farms? Hop over to the Bus the Barns page to learn about the bus option.
