It’s easy to forget the impact of the CSA model and how much your membership truly means to our farmers. This powerful Edible Madison piece written by FairShare farmer Lauren Rudersdorf of Raleigh’s Hillside Farm is well worth the read!

“CSA is the backbone of our farm and has been since the very beginning…The shares purchased by those first eight members bought the seeds to grow our crops and the cooler to store our harvests in. We love this business model because it gives us all the things I thought farmers could never have…”

Lauren Rudersdorf owns and operates Raleigh’s Hillside Farm outside of Evansville, Wis., with her husband Kyle. Together, they manage four acres of leased family land, growing vegetables for a small CSA and area restaurants. They are currently filling their 2017 CSA. In her free time, Lauren loves to share stories about farming, life and food on her blog, www.TheLeekAndTheCarrot.com.
