Seton Harvest, a community supported agriculture initiative sponsored by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. 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 2013 Seton Harvest harvested 47,594 pounds of produce with 10,481 pounds of produce going 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
+ St. Vincent Day Care
+ Evansville Christian Life Center
+ Many others
Since our first growing season in 2006, Seton Harvest has donated over 69,000 pounds of fresh naturally grown produce.

WELCOME TO THE FARM
Welcome Sister Maurenn
We would like to welcome Sister Maureen to the Seton Harvest team. Sister Maureen was missioned here as our Sister support for the farm. She comes to us from Gloverville, SC. Her experience with food comes from being the director of a very large food bank in Tuba City Az., where she lived on a Javajo Reservation.
As Sister Support, she will have her hands down and dirty on the farm, planting, weeding, harvesting, whatever Farmer Joe needs, as well has helping with the outreach. She will be going to health fairs, Farmer's Markets, school function and helping with the annual fundraisers.
Having a Sister commissioned to the farm is something that we have been wanting for the past several years.
We are truly blessed to have her with us
