About Bluestem Farm

To us, practicing organic, community-based farming is just as important as growing delicious food.

Bluestem Farm produces not only certified organic vegetables, but also pasture-raised chicken, pork, and eggs. We operate throughout the year and offer CSA memberships from early summer through late winter each year. Various sizes and combinations of share types are available—you build your own! 

Aaron and Mary Brower are first-generation farmers who believe small farms play a pivotal role in the work of preserving local food supplies, decreasing energy consumption, and bringing neighbors together in authentic communities. Bluestem Farm also offers engaging community programming like yoga in the barn and free monthly hayrides, and also some exciting food outreach initiatives.

Much of the 80 acres of woods, rolling grassland, and gardens that make up Bluestem Farm were fallow from the early sixties until 2012, when we came to own the land. During that time, the farm’s many habitats were protected in an interconnected patchwork vibrant with plant and animal life.

Today, we’re carefully transitioning the land back to working farmland in a way that continues to protect wild spaces, pollinators, and birds. Our farming practices include managed intensive rotational grazing, certified organic growing methods, and zero chemical inputs. We are proud to offer our members and customers certified organic vegetables and plentiful, varied diets straight through the gorgeous summers and long winters of northwest lower Michigan.

Our food is special not only because it is healthy, local, and environmentally responsible, but also because it is delicious. As cooks as well as farmers, we delight in the beauty, quality, and excellence of our food.

We chose the name Bluestem Farm for the native Midwestern grass by the same name. Its roots reach extraordinarily deep.
