Primrose Valley Farm is a proud member of the FairShare CSA Coalition, a non-profit Madison-based consortium of organic CSA farms. FairShare and its member farms conduct education, outreach, community building and resource sharing in order to promote the CSA model in conjunction with the modern food movement.
Among FairShare’s programs is Partner Shares, a cost-sharing program that provides financial assistance to qualified households needing subsidies to afford the purchase of CSA vegetable shares. For eligible households, FairShare will contribute up to $300 toward CSA farm share subscriptions placed with FairShare member farms. Participating families take on the responsibilities of being a CSA subscriber and work with the FairShare CSA Coalition to create an affordable payment plan for the remaining cost of their share.
If you are a Primrose Valley Farm CSA subscriber or just a friend of the Farm , your FairShare Partner Shares contribution can really help. A $300 contribution will subsidize a full share for a family of four for an entire season. We suggest $100, but we’re grateful for any amount. You will receive an acknowledgment for tax reporting purposes from FairShare along with a note of genuine thanks.
It’s likely that you won’t know the name of the family that benefits from your support. But we know you wouldn’t want it any other way!
