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.

Marlow Farms

Marlow Farms

Opdyke, IL

Marlow Farms was started over 50 years ago, when my great grandfather traded his small general store for a herd of Hereford cattle. Since then the farm has seen good years and bad, and time has taken its toll. 18 years ago, the farm began to transistion to my parents and my sisters, and we're endeavoring to bring it back to its former glory. We started a pumpkin patch, and we're working on adding goats for quality meat and cheese products. In addition, we're laying the groundwork for a farmer's market stand.

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.
