We’ve been farming at this lovely spot in West Michigan since 1992. While we are first-generation farmers, we couldn’t do what we do without the help of our parents and our adult children.
Over the years, we’ve learned to pay careful attention to the soil and its health, encouraging natural biological processes that increase plant nutrition and help us avoid pesticides. We firmly believe that if you start with healthy soil, you will raise healthy plants and animals, which adds to the health of people who eat what we produce.
We raise Belted Galloway beef (the oreo cows) that is 100% grass-fed and certified organic. In addition, we offer grass-fed lamb and wool from our flock of Polypay sheep, which is known for its high-quality wool and mild-tasting lamb.
We also grow many different varieties of heirloom dry beans, as well as corn (for our delicious corn meal and grits/polenta, ground locally) and small grains like wheat, oats and barley. All of these animals and crops work into our planned rotation, making the whole sustainable system more than just a sum of its parts.
