That’s My Farmer is a unique partnership between 13 Eugene faith communities and 12 area farms. This annual ‘meet the farmers’ event is held every April to showcase local CSA programs and encourage people to buy direct from their farmers and eat the best and most nutritious food on God’s earth.
CSA participants buy directly from local farms. Households pay at the beginning of the growing season to share the risk with farm families and give them much needed cash flow to sustain their farm businesses. In return, investing families receive a box of fresh farm products each week throughout the growing season. Most CSA programs deliver fruits and vegetables; some include products such as meat, eggs, honey, cheese and bread.
Celebrate the farmers who grow our food and steward our land at this fun, family-friendly event. All proceeds from the event go to the That’s My Farmer Low Income Fund, which subsidizes CSA shares for families in need. Anyone can contribute to the TMF Low Income Fund at any time throughout the year.
