This year we are working on increasing the ways we give back to the community that supports us. We know that our move and transition to our “forever farm” was in large part because of our community. You believed in us as growers and trust us to grow healthy delicious vegetables for their families. This year is a big year for us, on new land it’s a mix of starting over and continuing on what we started back in 2015 when we started farming for ourselves. The new farm means we have some bigger expenses this year for building the farm, (well, electric, greenhouse, coolers) and in theory we should be holding tight to ever dollar we make. BUT we also want pay forward the good karma that’s gotten us this far. And that’s why we are participating in The Big Share. We want to encourage you to sign up with an opportunity to pay-it-forward.
Leading up to “The Big Share” campaign that takes place on Tuesday the 5th of March. We will be partnering with our favorite non-profit FairShare CSA Coalition to donate 5% of our sales from Friday March 1st Through Tuesday March 5th. This 5% donation will go towards FairShare’s Partner Shares Program. FairShare’s Partner Shares Program began in 1993 to improve access to fresh vegetables grown by local farmers.
The Partner Shares Program provides financial assistance to limited-income households and eligible organizations to purchase CSA shares from FairShare farms. Elisabeth and I have been proud farm members of FairShare since 2016. We are excited to give back to this incredible organization that not only helps create food access, but also provides educational support to local farms and the surrounding community. Join us this season for fresh produce and join us in the next five days and Pay-it-Forward!
