In 2011, a group of Hmong American farming families formed the Hmong American Farmers Association (HAFA) because they believed the best people to support Hmong farmers are Hmong farmers themselves and that we are all lifted up when those who are affected by an unfair food system lead the change we seek. HAFA formed with the mission to advance the prosperity of Hmong American farmers through cooperative endeavors, capacity building and advocacy.

The HAFA Food Hub aggregates and sells members’ produce through community-supported agriculture (CSA) shares, schools, retailers and institutions. Through collective farm business development, education and advocacy, HAFA aims to build paths to wealth creation, not just income generation, toward a sustainable, fair food economy for all.

The HAFA Community Serviced Agriculture (CSA) offers fresh produce and flower shares throughout the growing season. The CSA features produce grown by Hmong farmers in the Greater Twin Cities area. When you purchase a HAFA CSA, not only are you committing to eat fresh produce, you are investing in local farmers and your community.

The HAFA CSA is not a food delivery service, but rather a social contract rooted in community, mutuality and stewardship for the land and the local economy. These tenants of community, mutuality and stewardship are also main pillars of the community wealth building movement. So this is what you have signed up when you join the HAFA CSA: an opportunity to build wealth in your community.
