Flint Ingredient Company

Flint Ingredient Company

Flint , MI

Flint Ingredient Company started four years ago with the purchase of 9.75 acres of vacant County Land Bank property. We started selling our produce at the Flint Farmers Market a year round market. Flint Ingredient Company began with a flock of 20 chickens, 6 sheep and vegetable production in a 48 ft hoophouse. We now focus primarily on vegetable production in four hoophouses and outdoor fields producing product year round on 1.5 acres. Franklin Pleasant and Erin Caudell are the primary operators with several part-time staff joining during peak season. In December of 2015, we opened a Michigan focused grocery store named The Local Grocer where we stock our produce. Later this summer will add a mobile vegetable market (with other community partners) to bring fresh local produce into the neighborhoods of Flint.

Corvus Landing Farm

Corvus Landing Farm

Neskowin, OR

Corvus Landing Farm is located at the Oregon coast. We grow high quality vegetables that we distribute locally through a 60 member CSA, farmers markets, and an on site farm stand. The farm started in 2010 with 1 acre of rented land and an intention to eventually increase in size to 4 acres. It has been steadily growing since. In 2014 we bought the property adjacent to our leased land, and this year we've added 1.5 acres of production, which will soon include berries and tree fruit.

We use all natural methods to preserve and protect the health of our land and our neighbors. We specialize in crops that do well in our cool coast climate and use hoop houses to increase our variety. In the spring, we grow and sell vegetable starts specialized for organic gardens in our unique coastal climate.

Bull Moose Produce Farm

Bull Moose Produce Farm

Little Falls, NY

It is a 20 acre produce farm. We have chickens and goats and serve our local farmers markets. we have been through the ups and downs of farming. with our first farm that we had we spent a lot of money and effort only to have family take the farm property away. many of our competators told us that we would never come back from this and that we should give up but we did not listen to them. we listened not only to our hearts ,but to our customers who begged us to come back. in 2013 we bought our current farm which needs a ton of TLC. we tried to save the historic barn that was on the property but we had to tear it down and will have to rebuild it
