Eat Local All Year Long!

Winter is coming and its generally thought to be a quieter time of year for local farmers. This is certainly true in some respects (some of the farm work occurs within the farm office), however many of our farmers continue to work outside throughout the winter season, too. Whether its caring for livestock, overwintering field greens or growing indoors, many of our local farmers strive to provide food for their members through the holidays and beyond. Learn more about their hard work and farm stories in farm profiles featured in our Chicagoland CSA Guide, and support them by signing up for a Winter CSA Share!

What does The Band do?

Band of Farmers earned its name when a group of CSA farmers banded together to "put on a show"--a talent show which has become a regular farmer event in spring. These farmers came together to form a coalition of farmers serving the Chicagoland area and in March 2015, we opened membership to all farms that serve the greater Chicago area with CSA and produce the majority of their CSA offerings. Our primary purpose is to educate consumers to expand markets for local foods in general and the CSA model in particular.

To that end, our farmers get out into the greater Chicago area community at farmers markets, health expos and green events. We list those events on our Facebook page. If you'd like us to come to your green group, your faith community, your workplace wellness fair, or any event where we can reach out to those concerned with their health and the health of the environment, please contact us via the button below.

Thank you for supporting local Chicagoland farmers!
