Rise Up Farms

Growing healthy foods for a healthy community!

Community Supported Agriculture

 Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project builds relationships between our farm eaters of food in the Elkhart and nearby communities.  We provide our members with an assortment of fresh, tasty vegetables each week from the beginning of June to the end of October.  In exchange, our members support the farm and allow us to keep doing what we’re doing.


How it works:

• You will receive 22 weeks of fresh produce, from the first week of June to the last week of October.

• You can pick up your weekly share at one of the two locations:

       At the farm (Tuesday or Friday from 5:00 - 6:00)

       At the Purple Porch Coop in South Bend (Wednesday from 5:00 - 7:00)


• Full shares will cost $600 ($27 / week) and should provide enough vegetables for a family of four.

• Half shares will cost $325 ($14 / week) and should provide enough vegetables for two people.

• We will strive to give you more than you paid for!  As a CSA member, you are making a season-long commitment to the farm.  That means you deserve to get more veggies for your dollar than you would get at the farmers market! 

• CSA members will always be our top priority.  We will devote all our resources to making sure you get ample, healthy produce at a good value.
