Distelrath Farms is an urban educational farm tucked inside the southeast corner of Indianapolis. We provide pastured-raised, grass-fed beef, pork, and pastured chicken year-round; and eggs and produce throughout their respective seasons.
At Distelrath Farms, we’re not just a local, sustainable, family owned farming operation. Our farm supports a core mission of education. We actively engage the community of Indianapolis through workshops, volunteer opportunities, and within the educational system. When you support Distelrath Farms you’re not only regenerating the health of an urban environment, you’re revitalizing the educational landscape of Indianapolis.
