Indian Springs Farmers Association

Indian Springs Farmers Association (ISFA) is a joint venture of 30+ small Black-owned farms from Mississippi that collaborate in growing and distributing their produce. First formed in 1976 to help African American farmers sell vegetables to a wider market, ISFA has become a long-time vendor with CCFM, bringing a rich array of in-season veggies to market each week. This time of year you’ll see a lot of greens and sweet potatoes at their table! Additionally, ISFA is often featured in the CCFM home delivery box during this time of year. Learn more about the cooperative’s organizer and revered Mississippi farmer, Ben Burkett, along with the history of the ISFA cooperative in this video.
