What is Fair Shares? It's not just your food, it's an adventure!

Fair Shares CCSA (Combined Community Supported Agriculture) has created a local food loop that connects farmers, small producers and the St. Louis community they feed. By supporting these farmers and encouraging our other producers to use locally-sourced ingredients, Fair Shares members are helping to grow the local economy, pay farmers a fair wage, and vote with their dollar by not supporting the broken industrial food system.

Having a relationship with our farmers ensures integrity and accountability so that we know our food is safe, nutritious and delicious. We provide local and seasonal foods grown with sustainable, if not organic practices. Our farmers don’t worry that we are feeding an insect or two along the way. Some farmers may spray in the event of an infestation, but not just as a preventive measure like our industrial food system practices.

We provide our members with a well-rounded example of the multitude of local food produced in our area, each week collecting and distributing fresh, seasonal products from farmers and artisans who call Missouri and Illinois home.

Tip: Sunchoke 101

These roots of a sunflower variety, also known as Jeruselem Artichoke, look a lot like ginger root. There are different schools of thought on the origin of the name Jeruselem artichoke, which is not from Jeruselem. I believe the one that says someone misunderstood the Italian word "girasole" which means sunflower...Read more

Testimonials

Fair Shares has created a new level of sales opportunities for area growers beyond restaurants and farmers markets. They have simplified for us the most difficult part of farming: marketing. Selling to Fair Shares has enabled us to sell larger quantities of produce with great ease. Not only is the ordering process simple but we can combine our deliveries with other farms in our area. Their commitment to supporting small local farms is unparalleled in the St Louis area, and we love them for it!
