Local, Organic Farm Resources

Many people ask me “Where do you buy your food?” What farmers do you buy from?  I know this is partial to Michigan, but here are some of the farmers I use most often and what I buy from them (listed alphabetically).  Not from Michigan?  Visit www.localharvest.org to find a farm in your area.

Please Note:  this is not an endorsement for a particular farmer or farm.  Healthy Traditions Network publishes a guide of many farms in Michigan and I must give credit to that group for inspiring and continuing to inspire and educate me toward connecting with farms, farmers and toward healthier eating, buying and living habits.  For other great farms get their guide at www.htnetwork.org or visit www.localharvest.org.
