FairShare farms grow their own food.
As a CSA member the relationship to your farm and farm community cannot be understated. There are many ways to get food; choosing to join a CSA Coalition farm means committing to a top quality farm and farmer, investing in a small family business and sharing the risks and benefits of farm membership. For us CSA is not a marketing model or a business scheme, it is a way of life. CSA means that a community of growers and eaters enter into a relationship, pledge to carry out their end of the bargain and in turn will share in the bounty.
All FairShare farms have been through a peer-reviewed application and interview process to ensure their ability to provide the highest quality foods and customer service.
There are 59 FairShare-endorsed farms serving the greater Madison, Milwaukee, Dubuque, Twin Cities and surrounding areas. FairShare farms follow the basic CSA model and offer a variety of crops and fresh food items.
If you are choosing a CSA for the first time, be sure to read these factors to consider when choosing a CSA farm before you begin your search to help you decide farm will best meet your needs and expectations.
