Spring and Summer CSA’s from Fair Farms Partners!

Every year, Fair Farms likes to promote the available Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs from our farmer partners. When you purchase a subscription, or share, you receive a regularly scheduled box of local produce, products, or meat – depending on the box and farm you choose. Many of our Fair Farms partners offer fall/winter CSA shares in addition to spring/summer shares. Keep an eye out for information about later season CSAs to make sure you sign up in time. Read the list below and consider signing up for a CSA near you! This is not an exhaustive list- there are other CSA options if none of these suit your needs.

Follow the links embedded in the farm name to register now. A few of these CSAs are sold out, but follow links to explore other options offered by those farms or to sign up for the waitlist.
