Rise Up Farms Cooperative

We are a community-based farm dedicated to cultivating healthy food, healthy environments and health people in Elkhart, IN. We grow vegetables using organic practices, with a focus on heirloom varieties. We also produce honey and eggs with the help of our bees and chickens. Our produce is available through our CSA, the Purple Porch coop in South Bend, and other venues.

Rise Up is more than a farm - it is also a community space. We host art classes, yoga classes, concerts, and other gatherings. We also offer opportunities for people to help out on the farm and learn about sustainable agriculture. For us, growing good food and cultivating a vibrant community go hand in hand.

It has been a joy to get our bag(s) of food each week from, as the kids say, "our farmer" Shaun, as well as go through the seasonally appropriate recipes and blogs that he sends out regularly.... [more]
