Local Food Share

Connecting the community to local agriculture though a multi-farm CSA (community supported agriculture) program.

What is the Local Food Share?

The Local Food Share is a multi-farm CSA program where participants (aka, shareholders) sign up for an entire season of fresh, local, sustainably-grown food. As a Local Food Share participant, you:

  • enjoy fresh, local food every week and receive recipe inspiration, produce/cooking tips, and more!

  • get to know your local farmers and support our Farmer Assistance program.

  • help make healthy food more affordable and accessible in under-resourced communities and support our Community Food Access program.

 How It Works

2020 Summer Season: June 10th - October 23rd (20 weeks)

2020 Winter Season: Dates TBA (8 weeks)

1

Sign up online and choose your shares (mix and match however you like: regular veggie + eggs + fruit is the most popular combo). Choose your pickup location, and pickup frequency (weekly or every other week). We recommend signing up before the season starts to help our farmers prepare for the season ahead. If you sign up after the season has started, the cost will be pro-rated.

2

At signup, opt to either pay for the full season upfront or in 5 installments.

3

Each week during the season our local farmers bring us their delicious, sustainably-grown food. Then, you meet us at your chosen pickup location to pick up your shares!

4

If you miss picking up one week, the food won’t go to waste! We donate leftover food to our Community Food Access program where we host markets at Head Start preschools and senior living facilities.

More About CSAs and Our Local Food Share

In a traditional CSA (community supported agriculture), members make a commitment to their local farmer by paying upfront for a season of produce. This upfront payment is vital to the success of many farmers, as it allows them to prepare for the season ahead (purchase seeds, pay farm staff, prepare the fields, repair/purchase machinery, etc.). Then during the season, farmers share their bounty of food with their CSA members, as well as share the risk if any unexpected occurrence hurts their crop (most commonly from bad weather).

Many of our farmers have their own CSA, as well as source to GoFarm's Local Food Share. We keep our farmers updated with how many participants we have so they can plan accordingly. By signing up for our Local Food Share you are helping us support many different farmers in Colorado, as well as showing your commitment to local farmers and your community. 

Our farmers rely on this commitment as they plan their growing season, and we rely on this commitment as we plan our programs for the year. This is why all orders are non-refundable, and why we are so appreciative of your support!

 

GoFarm works to transform our local food system into one that is thriving, environmental sustainable, and equitable for all. Through our three program areas, we support and mentor local farmers, make healthy food more affordable and accessible to under-resourced communities, and connect people with where their food comes from.
