Kentucky Farm Share Coalition Farm
As demand for workplace CSA voucher wellness programs grows we will accept applications from farms interested in being formally endorsed by the Coalition to participate in the following growing season.
Farmers must submit a full application and have an on-farm interview conducted by members of our
Farm Endorsement Committee. The application and interview process is to determine whether the applicant has the skills and resources to consistently provide quality produce and a positive experience for their CSA members. To be considered as a KY Farm Share Coalition endorsed farm, your farm must produce 100% of the CSA items on farm, be certified organic or in transition to organic certification (for produce), have operated a CSA for a minimum of three years and demonstrate an ability to provide a high level of customer service.
The benefit of joining the coalition is that we bring new CSA customers to your websites, your farms, your CSA programs and into the world of local and organic food!
