Hand Sown Farm

Hand sown farm is a 2 acre diversified vegetable, flower and fruit market garden nestled on 10 acres within sharon township, mi. our focus is on building soil health and biodiversity on the farm while cultivating crops for sale. We seek to minimize our environmental impact and promote an affordable, human-scaled way of farming through utilizing efficient hand tools and season extension techniques.

in addition to our fields, we have a 30x100' unheated hoop house, a 30x48' movable hoop house and a transplant production greenhouse. We sell at four markets a week during the height of the season (ann arbor and plymouth/canton) as well as several restaurant and grocery accounts. We have a small csa (45 members) who shop with us at any markets we sell at. Our practices are beyond organic standards:
