Top Farm Shares In St. Louis

As we become more conscious about our health, and our diets, we look for alternatives to regular grocery outlets. Homegrown and organic are becoming more popular, but we don’t all have time to do it ourselves. The answer? Farm shares. The St. Louis area is full of great opportunities to support, invest, buy and shop this wonderfully healthy, and delicious, alternative food source.

While you can buy great organic produce, grown by Earth Dance Farms, at the Ferguson Farmers Market, you might be missing the bigger picture. Sure, this farm grows great organic produce, but it also strives to spread the vision of connecting the community to the earth by supporting other organic farmers, and inspiring other creative ways of life. Its community outreach moves toward that goal by offering classes in such things as Farm and Garden Apprenticeships, Youth Programs, Community Supported Agriculture and more. Earth Dance offers classes and special events of all sorts so there is something for everyone who may have any level of interest in this new enterprise.
