Farming for us is a way of life. The Farm is our home, it's where we can express our creativity and passions. We strive to farm in a way that supports biodiversity and provides enjoyment and health for people and our planet.
PEOPLE AND COMMUNITY
At the center of our success is our community and relationships with people who support our farm. Whether it's through our farmer’s markets, restaurant partners or farm workers, we are always figuring out new ways to include people and positivity into the essence of our operation.
AGRITOURISM, EDUCATION AND HOSPITALITY
Our farm offers many opportunities to have some fun, learn new skills, rejuvenate or relax. It's part of who we are. We love to travel, to experience new and exciting things, and we definitely love to drink good wine and eat tasty food.
CERTIFIED NATURALLY GROWN
We are a certified naturally grown farm. It only takes one visit to our farm to see bountiful life and production in harmony with our surroundings. There are no chemicals, pesticides, insecticides or synthetic fertilizers used on our farm. If you'd like to learn more, join us for a tour or workshop, on Saturdays at our Barn Market or at the Market at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts on Tuesdays and Fridays.
