Big City Farm
Founded in 2009 by Matthew Jose, Big City Farm began growing vegetables on 7 scattered city lots on the near eastside. With gradual expansion, BCF consolidated its growing to one acre located at the Midland Arts and Antique Market where we grow today.
South Circle Farm
In 2010, a non-profit community development agency purchased an historic building and 1.5 acres of land on South Meridian Street. In 2011 South Circle Farm leased the land and readied it for farming by blanketing the site with a deep bed of woodchip mulch then topsoil and compost. The first vegetables were harvested in May 2011.
Each year the farm has improved techniques and productivity, recently adding over 4,000 square feet of high tunnel growing space.
The farm site is currently owned by non-profit Gennesaret Free Clinic, an organization serving the health care needs of homeless and low-income residents of Indianapolis.
