Gleaning with Operation Food Search:

Tuesday, June 14th from 9AM-Noon

Join Operation Food Search and the Three Rivers crew to glean peas, lettuce, and kale for local food pantries. The more hands to harvest, the more food we have to share with those in need of quality, organic produce. Come to the farm in work clothes that you don’t mind getting muddy and wet. Please bring your own water bottle.

About Three Rivers Community Farm

Three Rivers Community Farm is an 8 acre produce farm nestled behind the historic town of Elsah, IL, just a 10 minute drive north from Alton on the River Road. 2022 will be our 16th season. Thanks to all our loyal CSA members and farmer’s market and farm stand members that have helped make our farm a success. We are proud to be one of the oldest, most established and best CSA farms in the area.

More About Us

What We Grow

Our farm is known for our sweet carrots; colorful, flavorful varieties of lettuce; and unique mixes of cherry tomatoes and traditional slicing tomatoes. However, we grow so much more! From asparagus to zucchini, we grow it — over 45 types of vegetables and hundreds of varieties. What we don’t grow: sweet corn, orchard fruit, blueberries or raspberries.

Community Supported Agriculture is the heart and soul of Three Rivers Community Farm

Joining our CSA is a way for you to commit to including more produce in your diet while at the same time investing in the success of our family farm. We grow all our produce with intention and care for our soils, our employees and our members. It is a joint effort to eat well, know the face and the story of the food we eat, and share in a relationship with the land and the farmers. CSA members pledge financial support through their membership and in turn receive a great value in organically-grown produce and access to our wonderful farm to visit, do U-pick, and participate in farm events.

On Saturday mornings from 8-Noon you will find us at the Tower Grove Farmer’s Market inside Tower Grove park by the tennis courts. We are one of the premier vegetable vendors on Saturday at the market so come early for the best selection of our vegetables and pasture raised eggs.
