The background on this page is the mix of fuel used
to heat our greenhouse. We have a multi-fuel
furnace that burns a mix of pellets, local corn, and
Michigan cherry pits. Isn't it beautiful?
We raise one or two batches of roasting chickens
each summer. Rather than the traditional cornish-
cross meat chickens that are raised across the
country in factory farms, we've opted for a couple of
strains that were developed in France for pastured
poultry. Our meat chickens are colorful, hardy, and
great foragers. As a result of their genetics and
raising them on pasture, they have a wonderful real-
chicken taste, unlike the bland, tasteless chicken at
your local grocery store.
This year we'll be raising pigs again. If you're
interested, reserve a whole or half before June 15!
Our butcher will cut and smoke your purchase to your
Future products will include hazelnuts, arctic kiwis,
and paw paws. These are all in early stages of
cultivation, and will not be available for several
years, but we are awaiting them with anticipation.
Please check back for updates!
