Welcome - Get In on the Local Dirt!


The Irvington Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) group provides members with fresh produce - grown by an Amish farmer, Levi FIsher and family,  just 75 miles west of Irvington in Montezuma, Indiana.  Good land stewardship, sustainable farming methods. and respect for biodiversity is practiced.  No synthetic chemicals are used on soil or plants. 

Members pay a set fee in May of each year to receive a season's worth of vegetables throughout the growing season.  A discount is given if paid before April. The season is 25 weeks long.   

Once a week, members pick up their orders at another member's home. The contents of weekly baskets vary, depending on what vegetables are ready for harvest at the time.  Click on the Weekly Basket link to see examples of what is being delivered each week.  Information regarding weekly baskets and other CSA information are distributed through email.


There are also Special Orders available weekly.  - Special orders included vegetables and fruits in season, and honey, eggs, molasses, butter, and sometimes meet.


Whatever their weekly baskets contain, Irvington CSA members always enjoy the very best fresh, natural produce - straight from the farm.
