Products and Services:
FairShare is a coalition of 55 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms. At our website you can find farm profiles, tips and tools to help you choose a farm, and a searchable pick-up locations map. CSA rebates of up to $200 are offered by local health insurance partners, and through Partner Shares we assist limited-income households in purchasing CSA shares from coalition-endorsed farms.
Philosophy:
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is deeply rooted local economy, environment, and community. FairShare CSA Coalition supports and connects CSA farmers and eaters.

We envision a future where CSA is the backbone of a strong local food system; where all families have access to locally produced, organic food and have strong connections to their farms, food and community. Through education, outreach, community building and resource sharing, we are improving the quality and accessibility of CSA shares in our region.
History:
FairShare CSA Coalition began in the early 90's as a coalition of growers and eaters partnering to make food accessible and small organic produce farms viable through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). The organization evolved into Madison Area CSA Coalition (MACSAC) and, more recently, FairShare CSA Coalition to better represent the wide geographic scope of our participating farms. We continue to work with the community in support of CSA, food access, and farm-fresh food for all.
