Who is Local Grown Harvest?
As mentioned above, Local Grown Harvest is a local, family farmer’s market located in Milan, MI. The farm is ran by Bob and Kirsten Heath and their family, who truly believe in the significance of optimal nutrition and health. Their mission is to grow fresh, chemical free, non-GMO produce, pastured chicken and farm-fresh eggs in order to provide optimal nutrition to their community. Local Grown Harvest does not use any variety of pesticide or herbicide on their produce and they raise pastured chickens that are able to move around and forage outdoors naturally to offer farm-fresh eggs and delicious, nutrient-rich meat. While working diligently to expand, they currently service Milan, Saline, and Ann Arbor.
Furthermore, Bob and Kirsten are incredibly knowledgeable about the importance of farming without chemicals and the benefits of nutrient dense food. Unfortunately, it is not common knowledge these days to research and know exactly what we are putting in our bodies. However, people like us and like Bob & Kirsten want that to come to an end. Pesticides, herbicides, GMO, etc. not only put stress on our bodies, and cause an array of illnesses, but will certainly feed various diseases and even cancers. Providing our bodies with nutrient-rich, healthy food can prevent those maladies and disorders before they initiate or even better, combat an existing disease.
Check out these informational sections of their website to learn more on why local, better-than-organic, chemical-free food is so important--
Local Grown Harvest invites their customers and curious community members to take a tour of the farm so they can get to know them and see exactly how they operate the farm and green house. You can touch, smell, and taste their heirloom veggies and learn how they are sustainably grown all year long. This is an amazing advantage of buying local! When you know and trust your farmer, it is reassuring to know that they are growing it right, with the highest possible nutritional value and their growing it for you and your family.
What Do They Offer?
Local Grown Harvest is quite a unique farmer’s market for many reasons, like their online ordering option, but they are also able to provide produce all year round! Even in the middle of our frigid Michigan winters, you will be able to place orders for fresh produce thanks to their remarkable Aquaponics system. Essentially, their aquaponics method uses organic fish waste, made by organically fed koi fish, to fertilize plants and the water they swim in to hydrate them. This maintainable system results in plentiful amounts of fresh, nutritious plants and produce. Check out their greenhouse tour video and learn more about aquaponics HERE.
