Do you love to eat fresh, local produce? Do you love the idea of gardening for yourself, but just don't have the time? Sign up for our CSA farm share to have your delicious, fresh produce conveniently boxed up and ready for you each week. We'll do the gardening for you.
Our CSA is designed to be convenient. Beginning with our online order form, all you need to do is fill it out and submit it online. We'll then email you an invoice to pay via cash, check, or credit card. You can pay all at once, or opt for 50% now and 50% later.
Then your produce will be conveniently ready for you each week beginning in mid-June, lasting 20 weeks. And each week we will include a flyer insert with tips and delicious recipes utilizing some of that week's offerings. Not going to be around all summer? No problem! Select just the month(s) you would like to receive your produce.
We offer free pickup at the farm on Thursdays and Fridays. You can pick up at our hotspot in Marquette on Thursdays or Fridays. Or you can pickup at the Negaunee Farmers market on Wednesdays. You can opt for delivery to your home or business in Marquette and Harvey on Thursdays.
What exactly is a CSA Farm Share? Community Supported Agriculture is defined as: A system by which people purchase a share from a local farm and periodically receive vegetables and other agricultural products throughout the farming season. Find out more here.

In August of 2016 we purchased a 10-acre piece of property which included a farmhouse and shed. Purchased from the original family, who farmed the land in the past, we proudly are the second stewards of this property. The land was the perfect spot to fulfill our dream of creating a market farm for our own satisfaction and the benefit of the community. Locally and sustainably grown food, produced with freshness and quality is the primary goal.
We are happy to bring the farm back to life after several years of down-time. Not only are we bringing the land back to life, we have brought the home back to life after several years of disregard. The 9-month home renovation was definitely a challenge: Obtaining the proper permits, painting the aluminum siding, tearing out all the old beaverboard walls and ceilings, pulling out all the old fiberglass insulation (29 contractor bags packed full), pulling 42 pounds of nails out of the studs and joists (yes, we collected them, we weighed them, and we sold them for scrap!), ripping up old carpet and linoleum, removing kitchen cabinets, opening up walls for better flow and light. But before we could get to all that, we had to empty the house, which was full of everything a home is filled with. The house was still filled with clothes hanging on hangers in the closets, beds made, glasses, dishes, appliances, trinkets on the shelves, food in the cupboards, tables, chairs, linens, curtains, rags. . . Some of it was salvageable, but most of it had to go. Some of it went to St. Vincent's, and then we filled a 30 yard roll-off dumpster. We gave some more stuff away, and we threw some more stuff away. THEN we began the demolition.
Fast-forward 9 months and we have a beautifully renovated 1942 farmhouse that has passed final inspections and is up to modern codes and standards, yet still retains it's old farmhouse charm. As soon as the house was completed in June 2017, we turned our full attention to the garden. After we pruned the 18 heirloom apple trees on the property, we started from scratch mowing, tilling, and raking the garden plot; mixing in compost, tilling and forming the beds; seeding, and watering the rows. And now we continue to tend the bounty as we watch our garden grow.
Now we are happy and proud to offer our friends, family, neighbors, and the community with delicious, fresh, healthy, and sustainably grown vegetables and flowers.
Thank you for your support.
