Welcome to Fair Shares CCSA

Season 8 began April 1st, but you can jump in at any time because there's no end to the benefits of eating locally.

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: Clean Greens

The greens we get (particularly some of the winter spinach) can be pretty dirty. Sometimes they're pristinely clean, but still, we suggest you always wash your food! Give it an initial rinse and then remove the stems and soak the leaves in plenty of clean water. I use my salad spinner, placing the leaves in the...Read more


Yellow Dog Farms is a successful small farm in a large part due to Sara and Jamie at Fair Shares CCSA. They were willing to take a chance on a budding (pun intended) first generation Farmer. We were not a supplier to Fair Shares the very first year, but have been ever since and hopefully far into our shared futures.

I am proud to be a supplier and you should be proud to be a member of Fair Shares CCSA where we are all involved in growing and eating better quality, healthy food and supporting small, local businesses and small scale agriculture in Missouri and Illinois.
