Goetz Family Farm

About Us

Our family has been stewards of the same land since 1905. In the late 1970s, our farm transitioned from grain and livestock to produce. Since that time we've been marketing our produce at farmer's markets including the esteemed Ann Arbor Farmer's Market and Downtown Farmington Farmer's Market. Recently we have also been supplying fresh produce to several excellent restaurants including Zingerman's, Evans Street Station, and the Greenfield Village.

Three generations of our family provide the energy and expertise to operate our farm. We welcome CSA members to come and get to know us at our annual farm day.

Our Growing Practices

We believe the key to healthy produce is healthy soil. We work hard to incorporate cover crops, manure, and compost into the soil. Our efforts to improve the soil yield rich benefits in the flavor and nutrition of our produce.

Although we are not organically certified, our farm uses many organic practices.

Food safety is also a priority for our farm. Recently, we have achieved certification for several levels of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). This certification addresses food safety and sanitation, assuring the produce received from our farm is not only healthy but also safe.

Continuously accepting applications for qualified interns for the upcoming growing season.

We are a local family farm in SE Michigan that raises over 40 types of fresh produce. We pride ourselves in our farming heritage and feel compelled to be good stewards of the land. Our farm features year-round growing practices including hoophouses, greenhouse, low tunnel and open fields. Over the past decade we have transitioned from conventional growing practices to the hybrid growing practices that we use today. We utilize cover crops, compost, IPM and organic practices.
