About Us

In 2003, we began growing organic fruits and vegetables on Rebecca's family farm in rural, northeastern Clay County, Missouri. We focus on building the soil through biological farming methods, including extensive cover cropping. The farm is home to 2 farmers, 2 cats, 60 hens, 1 rooster and countless frogs, butterflies, birds and insects. The 200+ acre family farm is planted in native grasses, good habitat for deer, turkey, quail, coyotes and many other species of wildlife.

At the heart of Fair Share Farm are the 150 families that join us in our efforts through Community Supported Agriculture. More than 40 different vegetables, fruits and herbs are grown for the CSA. Each family contributes between 8-16 hours per year to the CSA either by helping at the farm during the weekly harvests or on the Core Group which guides decision-making, holds member events, conducts the annual survey, coordinates the distribution sites and keeps the CSA running smoothly. We welcome you to join our community of happy eaters!

In addition to our CSA we produce a variety of fermented vegetable recipes using the produce raised on our farm. Sauerkraut, kimchi, cucumber pickles, jalapenos and other delicious, nutritious and live-culture products will be available in 2017 as we begin operation of our Farm to Ferment facility.
