Since our start in 2003 we have quietly provided scholarship shares (CSA shares underwritten by the financial support of others). Up to this point, Kate and I have done the underwriting.

In conversations with many of you, we’ve wondered aloud how to get more of our food to the wider world. Turns out, there is a great willingness to help underwrite scholarship shares. (Of course! We have an incredible, inspiring, generous collection of people in our CSA community.)

So, we’re now ready to formalize the process and open it up to you. This is a very direct, immediate, local method of reaching out. You can now help provide the freshest and most nutrient dense foods available.

How will this work?


You may help identify recipients. Recipients must have the willingness to engage in the CSA process, and true need.

Earmark your donation as “scholarship fund”. (Kate and I will contribute an additional 1.5 shares to any funds raised by our CSA community). We’ll keep a running tally, and keep you updated. We’ll gladly recognize your contribution publicly, if you so choose.

Any questions, concerns, suggestions: contact me, Chris, at tel#989-382-5436, or email, through wordpress or on facebook.

Please send your donation to:

Swier Family Farm

640 E 18 Mile Rd.

Remus, MI 49340

Thank you,

Chris and Kate Swier
