Groundswell Community Farm is a CSA growing nutritious vegetables on the beautiful bottomland muck of Beaverdam, Michigan. For our ninth season, the farm will grow for 170 members. We currently have shares open in Holland, Zeeland and Grand Rapids for the 2014 summer season and our 2014 winter shares. We pro-rate the cost if you join mid-season. You can find us at the north end of Fulton St. Farmer's Market in Grand Rapids on Saturdays and at the Holland Farmers' Market on Saturdays. Our produce is also available at all three locations of Harvest Health from June to October. We are certified organic and use methods that grow nutrient-dense food to protect farmworkers, local soils and water. We strive to provide fair pay and good working conditions for all of our farmworkers.
In the winter, we sell through the West Michigan Cooperative, www.wmcoop.com and through a small 50-member CSA in November and December.

How nice to have the option of a local, organic, women-run farm with pick up in Holland! Plus, the lovely farmers are fabulous people to work with.... [more]
