We love our treasured vendors and their products! Our goal is to share with you their quality produce, products, and gifts that have become our favorites. We have over 30 vendors and nearly all are local or Michigan-based. Please keep in mind that some of these are seasonal and their offerings may vary. Through our giftware vendors and artists, we offer quality, unique, and home-crafted items we know you will enjoy.
We carry produce and grocery items that were grown or supplied by other farms or vendors to:
- Supplement our crops when our fields do not produce enough to meet demand.
- Provide you with a wider variety of produce since we simply cannot grow everything!
- Provide you with top quality grocery items and gifts made locally or by Michigan vendors.
