Farm

The Blandford Farm is a short walk west of the Visitor Center where we focus on raising healthy farm animals and growing naturally-grown, local food.

With 2.5 acres of land, the Blandford Farm has been growing over 200 different varieties of vegetables since 2010 while growing healthy produce and educating families through farm-related programs. 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 CNG and SFWM!

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 early registration and discounted pricing!

*NOTE: Blandford Membership must be non-expired at the time of CSA purchase to receive discount and priority registration.

BNC Members can purchase shares beginning January 1, 2019.
Non-members can start purchasing shares on CSA Day (February 22, 2019).

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

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