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 two farmers, two cats, 140 hens, two roosters and countless frogs, butterflies, birds and insects.
Our infrastructure is focused on sustainable energy and includes a passive solar greenhouse, 30 gpm solar-powered irrigation system, electric tractor and utility vehicle, and a 20kW solar array. 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 100+ families that join us in our efforts through Community Supported Agriculture. More than 20 different vegetables, fruits and herbs are grown for the CSA. Families contribute between 4-16 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!
