Avalon Farms Premium Homegrown

Our concern for our community, and soil and water resources provides the framework for our family business. Having made the commitment to continue using the land for food production by enrolling more than 500 acres into Michigan's Purchase of Development Rights program, the Leach family raises vegetable crops including hydroponic tomatoes, salad greens and herbs. Avalon Farms Homegrown is MAEAP verified in farmstead, cropping and greenhouse systems.

Produce from the greenhouses and the market garden are sold to a limited number of area restaurants, through our Share of the Farm CSA and at the Battle Creek, Bellevue, Vicksburg and Kalamazoo Farmer's Markets. Residents of the Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and Marshall areas, as well as surrounding communities, can purchase seasonal "Share of the Farm" home/office delivery subscriptions featuring fruits and vegetable products grown in Michigan. Program details and rates will be available in February.

Farm tours are offered by appointment. Please be sure to provide either an e-mail address or telephone number when contacting us.

"Share of the Farm" subscriptions provide seasonal selections from our gardens and greenhouses. We also regularly include products from our farmer friends, like dark sweet cherries from Michigan's Old Mission Peninsula, Honey Crisp apples and strawberries from the Hartford area, and potatoes, carrots and onions from the Zeeland area, to name a few. We are always on the watch for high quality Michigan produce and products that our customers would enjoy. Choose delivery or pick-up.
