Ready to join? Our 2023 CSA sign-up is OPEN!
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs are one of the most powerful ways to support local, food producers across the nation. They were developed as a way for small farms to financially secure their growing season and for their members to share in the vegetables raised by the farmer.
As a member, you will financially invest in our farm, either upfront, through a payment plan, or through FairShare CSA PartnerShares Program, and we promise to share the bounty of all the food we raise with you over 16 weeks in the summer season. Our produce is distributed to our members at multiple drop sites across the Twin Cities each week in the form of a pre-packed veggie box.

Our CSA Program runs for 16 weeks in the summer, but CSA members only pay for 14 weeks. As a CSA member, you will be allowed two vacation days through the duration of our program.

We are cultivating a new narrative with our food. A narrative where our food is raised locally and in reciprocity with the lands natural systems. Where food is chemical and pesticide free. A story where our community and our farmers come together in sharing the bounty of the earth. We hope you’ll join this narrative and eat with us this season!

If you want to create your own delivery location near you, all you need to do is gather 5 of your friends or neighbors committed to joining our CSA and we’ll deliver to a location of your choosing! Contact us for more information on creating your own delivery location.
Our CSA program offers two options for payment. We do this to make our CSA more financially accessible to anyone interested.
Option #1: Pay the full amount for your share when you sign up. This is a great option for members who can afford to pay for the whole season in the spring.
Option #2: Payment plan. Pay a deposit when you sign up, then pay automatic monthly installments on the first Sunday of July, August, September, and October. Pricing details for each share size are explained on the CSA shopping page. You are still committing to the full 14 weeks of our CSA program and will be charged for the whole season, just spread out over a longer period of time.
**All online payments are subject to pay a community supported software fee to support the Food4All shopping platform**
