The Middleton family has been farming and raising cattle for over 75 years. It started when Clinton Middleton Sr. bought a small parcel of land south of Coleman, MI with his wife Rose (Kehoe). They raised 4 boys, 3 of which continued working on the farm. These three sons, Joseph (Joe), Gerald (Jim), and Clinton Jr (Hooch) worked very hard to continue what Clinton had started. They were able to build that small parcel of land into one of the largest family farms in Midland County.
In the mid '80s when times were hard on all small farmers, the 3 sons had to call it quits. This period ended C. Middleton & Sons, but it did not stop the 3 boys from doing what they loved, only on a much smaller scale. They only grew what they needed, and a little extra to help pay the bills. Now the 3rd generation is trying to continue what our grandpa had started. We are taking the farm in a new direction. Instead of corn, beans, and hay, it will be fruits and veggies, naturally grown and sold directly to the consumer.
We are now a CSA program. CSA stands for community supported agriculture. We offer shares of the crops we grow and animals we raise. Our vegetable shares are distributed to our members once a week during the growing season. Our meat shares are delivered or shipped to the customer.
At Middleton Farms, we use all natural farming methods to produce healthy, flavorful, locally grown meats and produce. We offer this delicious food to our customers thru our CSA program in which we sell "Harvest Shares", and at local farmer's markets. Thru our Harvest Shares™, you will receive fresh produce once a week throughout the growing season.
