Seton Harvest: Providing Locally Grown Food to Shareholders and the Hungry

Have you seen the Seton Harvest video?  It is an organic, sponsored farm in Evansville, IN. Food grown and harvested is shared with local shareholders and the poor in the surrounding community. Watch this 6-minute video below.

From their website:

Seton Harvest is a community-supported agriculture initiative sponsored by the Daughters of Charity Province of St. Louise. The certified Naturally Grown farm uses the land in a just and environmentally conscious way by sharing locally grown food with shareholders and persons who are financially poor and hungry in our community.

In 2015, Seton Harvest harvested 49,472 pounds of produce with 11,560 pounds of produce donated to many shelters, food banks and church pantries. A portion of each week’s harvest goes directly to nearly a dozen different charities serving the poor and hungry including:

  • Ozanam Family Shelter​
  • Vincent Day Care
  • Evansville Christian Life Center
  • Many others

Since our first growing season in 2006, we have donated more than 94,000 pounds of fresh, naturally grown produce.
