FarmShare was launched in 2008 by Kari Moore, a dedicated local food advocate, long-time locavore, and curious cook. The idea was simple -- help people discover the freshness, flavor and fun of eating locally and seasonally.
Now in it's sixth year, FarmShare features seasonal offerings of fresh, Northeast Ohio fruits, vegetables, and Ohio artisan foods as well as culinary inspiration and recipes to help make the most of the local harvest.
FarmShare also offers opportunities for businesses and individuals to get acquainted with our local food community through events and explorations of the local foodscape as well as individualized tours, coaching, farmer-chef introductions, and consulting.
How FarmShare Works:
FarmShare has cultivated partnerships with farmers and producers throughout the Northeast Ohio region to grow, harvest, and deliver the freshest, most flavorful fruits, vegetables, and locally made foods available. We also work with local bakers, beekeepers, and artisan food producers to offer a variety of wholesome and delicious, Ohio-made foods. A seasonal commitment to our farmers and producers ensures that FarmShare subscribers receive top-notch quality and variety throughout the season.
