Meet the Locavorious Growers
Meet the growers that have grown some of our food in 2014:
Richard and Deb Lenz, Tantre Farm, Chelsea, Michigan. You cannot miss the most beautiful displays at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market Wednesdays and Saturdays. Certified organic.
Karlene and Jonathan Goetz, Goetz Farm, Riga, Michigan. Karlene and usually Jonathan and son Steve are at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market Wednesdays & Saturdays with quite the bounty.
Karen and Kurt Wilczewski, Wilczewski Greenhouses, Howell, Michigan. Karen says all the work is done by the Wilczewski family…and they’ve been farming the same land in Howell for 20 years now. To find the Wilczewskis at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market, just look for the largest cauliflowers you have ever seen.
Wade Pregitzer and his whole family, Pregitzer Farm Market, Munith, Michigan. In 1996 Wade thought he’d grow and sell a few pumpkins at a roadside stand, and now, as they say, the rest is history. You can find Pregitzer’s stands and CSA pick-ups at the Westside Farmers Market, Chelsea, Jackson, and sometimes the Lansing city farmers market too. Have some fun and go visit their place in the fall.
– best raspberries we’ve ever had! And yes, certified organic!
Pleasant Hill Farm – best blueberries, and yes, certified organic!
