Irvington CSA

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between farmers and a local community. The farmers supply the community with season-long, fresh, local produce and the community –in turn –supports the farmer by pre-paying.

Farmers gain economic security for environmentally-friendly farming while CSA shareholders know where their food comes from and how it was grown.

Our 60+ annual crops are farmed by Levi Fisher and family in Montezuma, Indiana. They do NOT use synthetic chemicals on the soil or plants. They practice good land stewardship, sustainable farming methods and respect for biodiversity on the farm. Their produce is delivered to Irvington for families to pick up every week for 25 weeks beginning in May.
