Farm Work Guidelines

Harvesting scallions

Membership surveys have shown that working at the farm and helping to bring in the harvest is one of the things people most enjoy about the Fair Share Farm CSA. We want the experience to be a fun, educational, safe and worthwhile morning. To help with that we ask that you read the At The Farm guidelines and plan accordingly.

On farm work days we begin promptly at 8AM with at safety talk and go over the plans for the morning. It is important that members arrive at the farm before 8AM to give themselves time to get ready for the morning activities.

Farm Work Schedule

Members that are not on the Core Group must sign up for their farm work shifts in advance of the season. This helps the farmers in planning harvest activities. You may sign up for your shift on-line.

We will be using the on-line site Sign-up Genius this year.

An up-to-date copy of the schedule will be available during the season on the Fair Share Farm CSA (closed group) Facebook page.

Partner Vendors

Fair Share Farm CSA seeks to benefit both its members by connecting them with local sources for healthy food not available through Fair Share Farm and to help local farmers who follow sustainable and/or organic practices reach those consumers who most value their products.

Our Partner Vendors supply CSA shares to FSF CSA distribution sites. Members sign up for these add-on shares with the Partner vendors directly.  All of our Partner Vendors will be available at the Fair Share Farm CSA Spring Sign-up on March 21st with information on their fabulous products and samples to share.

There are three options to choose from: a weekly share with cheeses from Skyview and Goatsbeard alternating weeks, an every-other week share with just Skyview cheeses, or an every-other week share with just Goatsbeard cheeses.

Tiny Whole Farm

We are a small family farm offering pasture raised poultry, farm fresh eggs and raw goat milk. We will be offering our pasture poultry to members of the CSA for regular delivery, or bundled for bulk purchase. Both our layers and the broilers are raised without use of any antibiotics or growth hormones. We use a feed that is NON GMO. They are allowed to scratch for worms and gather insects as a chicken should. Our milking goats are also pharmaceutical free and are fed a custom blended feed that is NON GMO, corn and soy free. Their milk may be purchased at the farm or via special arrangements. Come see us at the Spring Sign-up to meet our family and learn more about our farm. We love to chat about our critters and look forward to meeting more of the Fair Share Farm family.” Chris & Janel Wagner – Noah and Hannah, Tiny Whole Farm
