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.
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.
CSA Fresh Produce Access Fund Donation
Thank you to our CSA members for helping us to bring nutritious organic produce to more people. In 2022 our CSA members donated $1,575, and we donated 3,418 pounds of produce with an estimated value of $6,700.
Your donation will help subsidize our efforts to grow and harvest organic produce for Operation Food Search and the Jerseyville Food Pantry.
