CSA - Community Supported Agriculture 

Let Ron and Vickie at Five Points Heritage Farm grow you food by joining our CSA!  If you like getting vegetables fresh from the farm grown in Iowa soil and sun to your table, then you will like our produce.  You will receive better quality, nutritious vegetables at similar prices found in the grocery stores.  Farmers and CSA members will share recipes and tips for preparing vegetables so that you can enjoy your produce.
