Partners in life and entrepreneurship, Emma and Elliot bring a combined nine years of growing experience to Fair Share Farm. From Texas to West Virginia, the duo has been a part of farming and food culture from the field to the kitchen. As competent and confident farm managers, E and E are ready to dig in for the 2015 season!

At Fair Share Farm, good food is about good living. A slice of the good life is available to everyone by becoming a Farm Harvest Member. Membership is synonymous with a subscription service; seasonal produce is available every week, June through October. Often known as a CSA, the Community Supported Agriculture business model is based on an ethos of partnership shared by producer and the community. Members and producer work together towards the common goal of enjoying the finest quality local food, grown without synthetic chemicals and sprays, exchanged at a fair price.

Proud to be farmers, Emma and Elliot own and operate Fair Share Farm on the city line of Winston-Salem. A former dairy, new life abounds at the Shouse family farm. Directly in front of Reagan High School in Pfafftown, atop one of the highest points in all of Forsyth County, Fair Share Farm has an incredible view of downtown Winston-Salem. And, it’s a beautiful farm. See that beauty put into action: be part of something amazing with Fair Share Farm.

Spring through early winter, the farm will be growing an abundance of seasonal favorites. Heirloom tomatoes, squash, crisp peas, sweet carrots, and a bounty of fresh cut, baby salad mixes are some of the great things growing at Fair Share Farm. Great care is taken to grow the best salad mixes and micro greens; you can find Fair Share Farm’s specialties at local area restaurants, the roadside stand, and Cobblestone Farmer’s Markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Emma and Elliot need your support. Help young farmers succeed by becoming a Farm Harvest Member. Nourish your family with high quality, local produce and nourish your community by supporting young entrepreneurs. Affordable and convenient, Farm Harvest Membership options can be purchased on the website, www.fairsharefarm.net.

Winston-Salem Northern Beltway on Schedule Again

If you live in Pfafftown, you should be following the development of the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway which is slated for construction in 2015. There have been several ‘scares’ over the years but now it looks like the process is starting to move forward.

“Based on NCDOT’s Urban Loop Acceleration Plan, the department is speeding up the purchase of property and the start of construction for a portion of the eastern section that stretches from U.S. 421/Business 40 to U.S. 158. This portion was previously unfunded and had no set schedules. The plan allowed right-of-way acquisition to begin in 2012 and construction to start in 2015. The accelerated schedule is made possible by Grant Anticipation Revenue, or GARVEE, bonds, which allow NCDOT to borrow against future federal funding.”
