Winkler Partners-Ahui Community Supported Agriculture program

by WP

Winkler Partners’ and Ahui’s transitional organic farm were written up this week in a Liberty Times article about Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) in Taiwan.

The article highlighted Winkler Partner’s partnership with Ahui’s farm in Tucheng, which since 2009 has provided our firm’s employees with weekly deliveries of fresh produce. Through the CSA model, Winkler Partners employees prepay for the produce several months in advance, sharing in the risk and rewards of each season’s harvest.

Ten percent of the money for the vegetables goes toward a fund to help the farm weather damage caused by natural disasters. Last year, Winkler Partners was able to contribute $10,000 NTD toward the purchase of seedlings to replace a major crop loss due to torrential rains.

The article also covered other CSA programs in Taiwan, including the Fushan CSA, the Chien-jia Village Farm CSA, and the Gudong Club.
