Farm

The Blandford Farm is a short walk west of the Visitor Center where we raise healthy farm animals and grow local, sustainable produce.

With 2.5 acres of land, our farm has been growing over 200 different varieties of vegetables and educating families on local agriculture through farm-related programming since 2010.

Our food is grown in the greenhouse thanks to a donation by the Prein family.

 

Although we are not organic, we are Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) and apart of Slow Food of West Michigan (SFWM)? Click the photos below to learn about each!

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship between community members who prefer locally-grown food and the farmers that grow it. CSA members support and invest in the farm by purchasing a “share” of the harvest that they can pick up weekly.

BNC Members receive discounted and early registration!

*Membership must be non-expired during purchase to receive early & discounted registration.

Members can purchase shares beginning Tuesday, January 1.
Non-members can start purchasing shares on CSA Day (Friday, February 22).

View the table below to see what veggies will come in your share throughout the year!

This is a sample share and is subject to change based on share size and field conditions.
