Central Indiana Farm Fresh Atlas

Call to everyone! The Indy Food Security Initiative is creating a Central Indiana Farm Fresh Atlas. This atlas will list farms, food-related businesses and local/organic non-food products that sell their goods directly to customers in central Indiana. It will be the link to great-tasting food and great products grown/produced close to home! This will be printed and placed around the city and will be free.

Please email your farm, restaurant, grocer or other non-food business to us. If you know of someone who should be listed, please email us their info!

What we need:
Short Description

The farms that we will list in this atlas must be all family or cooperatively owned and sell products grown on their farm or produced by their business. They’ve pledged to operate in a way that protects our region’s land and water resources by eliminating the application of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, provides safe and fair working conditions, and treats animals with care and respect.

The restaurants that we will list in this atlas serve local food, mentioning where organic, and follow practices that protect natural resources and worker safety.Whether selling local food on their shelves, advocating for sustainable agriculture, or educating the public, the businesses and organizations listed here support local and organic eating and buying.

Thanks and spread the word!
