In recent years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) business models have become increasingly popular throughout the country. As consumers become more interested in knowing where their food is grown, looking to local farmers is more and more commonplace. CSAs provide direct access to your food supplier and provide the added benefit of supporting your local economy. Lucky for residents of Main Street Village, there are lots of great local farms that offer a CSA near Granger.
Located in Granger, Nourish Produce is an area farm that has been harvesting local produce since 2008. With a mission to provide non-GMO and organic products, Nourish Produce grows lettuce, greens, and other vegetables throughout their growing season. Join their Peck O’Produce CSA subscription from June through October and pick up your fresh produce at their farm stand in Granger.
Operating since 2009, Richert/Phillips Farms is a small local farm in North Liberty that grows organic produce. Full CSA shares are available annually and provide weekly baskets from June through the end of October. CSA members can pick up their shares at Richert/Phillips Farms directly, or they can pick them up at the South Bend Farmers’ Market on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
Operating as an educational farm, Bertrand Farm works with the community to educate area residents on sustainable agriculture. Bertrand Farm operates from two locations including their 11-acre farm in Niles, Michigan as well as their urban farm in South Bend. Their 18-week working CSA program encourages members to participate in the harvesting of produce. Customize your CSA share each week from April through October. Pick up is available at the South Bend location on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
