Hearty Harvest is a western-themed farm market that offers produce, of which 90% is grown on my family’s property and 10% from local Michigan farms. Our customers come for produce ranging from sweet corn to pumpkins and everything in between. Every year we add new vegetables to our gardens and expand our “settlement.” Our latest addition is a “schoolhouse” greenhouse which will allow us to offer flowers and transplants in the spring and late produce into the fall. We will also be expanding with Christmas trees, a cider mill, and a bakery in the near future.
We are more than just “the giant pumpkin patch.” All summer long we’re harvesting beans, sweet corn, tomatoes, squash, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, beets, potatoes (in many colors), kohlrabi, and much more. Nearly everyone that tastes our sweet corn says it’s the best sweet corn they’ve ever had. We’ve even had customers cry over the amazing flavor and order it straight out of the field. When the fall harvest is done, we plan to expand into Christmas trees and start up with flowers in the spring.
Hearty Harvest is not just a farm stand. It’s a way of life that carries on the same values my grandfather had. It’s a place where kids can play without cost while their parents pick up some fresh veggies for dinner. Walking into the store is an invitation to learn about the tools and lifestyles of yesteryear. Some of the antiques displayed were once used by my grandfather and even some by my great grandfather. I often hear customers tell me they remember items from their childhood. Hearty Harvest is a place for new and old memories.
