the farm

Seeking independent producers who are interested in growing plants, produce, or raising animals in a green, thoughtful and humane way.

We are excited to announce that we will be expanding our endeavors to include the acreage surrounding SOUTHGATE CROSSING. We are currently engaged with representatives from the local Food Council, USDA, NRCS, Purdue Extension, Elkhart County Soil and Water Conservation, and the Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College, to identify the best path forward. Southgate Crossing͛s investment in grounds expansion is rooted in establishing food stability, being champions in environmental stewardship, and to become a foundation for continued local economic growth and development.

Areas of interest:

  • Food production;
  • Natural resources conservation (healthy soil, restoration, and agroecology);
  • Community engagement and education;
  • Economic development and agritourism;
  • and Local food stability.
