Local Food Sources
Would you like to be listed on this resource page?
ALSO: A question not on the form that we’d like to include is, where can customers find you? At the farm only? Any farmer’s markets? Any drops in certain areas of the city? Be specific and we’ll add it below. (Or email any changes or additions to info@NourishingWays.org.)
NOTE: The form at that link is geared toward farmers, so if you’re not a farmer, please just fill out as much as possible that applies to the local food you offer.
Here’s an article you may want to check out: What knowing your farmer looks like.
Know your farmer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about how they raise your food.
Listed below are farms/food producers who have filled out our information form.
*PLEASE NOTE that showing up in this list only means that they have filled out the form so you can find out more about how they operate. It does not mean that Nourishing Ways of West Michigan or the Weston A. Price Foundation recommends them. We are unable to visit every farm or monitor their business/farming practices, so we encourage you to use what you read here to get to know your farmers and food producers better, and be sure to visit them and ask questions, too!
