We have a small Certified Organic CSA, we work with other organic farms selling produce through an online website and we also we go to farmers market. We grow a large variety of vegetables, grow also in 4 hoop houses. We pasture our chickens and graze our cattle. Interns can stay in fully equipped travel trailers or they can camp on the farm. High speed internet is on the farm for interns use (bring your own laptop.) We teach as much as we can. Interns who want to enjoy the serene environment and just provide a helping hand are also welcome. It is up to the intern as to how much they want to learn. We believe it is important to get connected with nature and grow food in a sustainable manner.
Food is provided and some evening meals are eaten and prepared together. Interns without transportation can be picked up at the airport, train or bus station, bikes are available so they can travel to nearby towns. The farm has 3 miles of rustic trails, good for hiking, mountain biking, foraging, bird watching, photography etc. We are near many small towns that have events and activities through the summer. We are 70 miles North of Detroit and about 1 hour away for Lake Huron.
New this year is a mulch layer, which we will use to lay paper on our raised beds to help control weeds.
