The Fair Shares Team

Fair Shares employs three people (all of them are in the photo). Sara and Jamie (the youngest and the second oldest, respectively) are the sisters who founded Fair Shares in 2008. During the first season, we hired sister Lindy Sullivan (third oldest, standing to the left of Jamie, at right). I know, we haven't changed a bit.

Even with three full-time employees, there is a lot that goes into this complex and complicated puzzle, and we rely heavily on the help of many member volunteers. We could not do it alone and if anyone is interested in learning how it works and helping to make it happen, please email us.

Thank you to our devoted volunteers for putting the community into our Community Supported Agriculture. We like to think of all our members and volunteers as one big, happy family. Dinner's ready!

And you folks all rock!
