Three Rivers Community Farm

“We are proud to be one of the oldest, most established CSA farms in the area.”

“Three Rivers Community Farm is an 8 acre farm practicing regenerative and organic agriculture to grow produce for a 300 member CSA, two farmers markets and a local farm stand in Elsah, IL. We are entering our 14th season and are proud and grateful to be feeding our STL community of veggie conscious consumers!

“We grow too many vegetables to name; also melons, cantaloupe, strawberries and blackberries. We also just planted a pawpaw orchard of 50 trees which should start producing in 2024.”
