We believe the best food is that which is fresh and free of chemicals. That is why we are certified organic and harvest most of our produce the same day it is received. We also focus on quality through the way we grow, harvest, and handle our veggies. We strive to provide our CSA members and customers with the highest quality produce available, because we believe that eating healthily should be delicious. With most produce available in supermarkets coming from California, which is 2000 miles away from mid-Michigan, we are a great alternative to the often tired looking produce at the supermarket.
We also believe in a diverse farm system, which means including animals and a wide range of crops together in our fields. Our markets are also diverse, as we seek to meet the needs of those who want local produce. These include families, privately owned restaurants, small grocery stores, and institutions. This diversity of markets and crops helps keep our farm more financially stable, as well as promoting a healthier farm system for the soil, crops, animals, customers, and surrounding environment.
Monroe Family Organics is located in Alma, MI where we grow some of the highest quality certified organic vegetables in Michigan. We sell our produce to members of our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, as well as to several local restaurants, stores, and co-ops.
Our CSA program runs for 20 weeks, from June to October. We are currently signing people up for our 2015 season! We deliver to Alma, Mt. Pleasant, Midland, and East Lansing.
