Harvest Shares starting shortly !
We are 2 weeks behind because of the 2 weeks of rain we got in May. We usually don`t start until we have a good variety. The way we see it, there`s no point having you come to the drop-off to get a handful of strawberries and rhubarb, instead we want you to fill your basket and feel like you`ve done your vegetable shopping for the week:-).
Please add email@example.com to your address book so you can receive important updates regarding any of the shares you`re participating in.
Want to put in an order for different cuts of meat to pick up at the Midland market on Saturday or the Bay City market on Thursdays? Just e-mail,call or send us a message on Facebook and we`ll bring and hold what you want for you to pick up!

Thank you for the amazing support this year, we do have a waiting list for next year, please e-mail for more information.
A great way to support local farming and eat vegetables and fruit that was on the vine just hours before the drop-off. Our vegetable drop-off this year will be Thursday evenings in Midland. Our members are also welcome to come out to the farm and pick their own share. We do not sell vegetables outside of the CSA, everything extra that we grow goes to our members or donated!

A Harvest Share is the perfect way to purchase our delicious fresh produce and support local agriculture at the same time. All produce will be fully ripe before being harvested and delivered to the pick up point. This is the only way for the produce to attain peak flavor. You receive the freshest, healthiest produce possible and the dollars you spend stay in the community.
Here's how it works: before the growing season we sell shares of the produce that is harvested from the fruits and vegetables we grow. When the fruits and vegetables ripen, we will start harvesting. Not all crops will be ready to harvest at the same time. Whatever is ready for harvest will be hand picked once a week and divided equally among the shares. Share owners will have limited ability to customize what they receive.
You will be taking a risk with the farmer. So take time to consider and make sure this option is for you! Bad weather, pest invasions and drought are all reasons why shares may not be as big as you might expect.
The shares will be taken to a pick up point where the share owner can pick up their share of the harvest. If the owner cannot make it to pick up their share, they can send someone in their place to pick up their produce.
Shares will be delivered throughout the growing season which, in Central Michigan, lasts for about 13-16 weeks.
A full share will average about one bushel of produce and feed a family of 4-5.
A half share will average about half a bushel and feed 2-3 people.
A quarter share is perfect for one person.
Remember to wash all produce prior to consuming.
