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 three 30x100' unheated hoop houses, a 30x48' movable hoop house and a transplant production greenhouse. We sell at two markets a week during the height of the season (plymouth and northville) 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.

We are certified organic and grow food in a way that is healthy for the environment, the community and ourselves. We've found the best way to do this is to implement simple and affordable technologies combined with old fashioned growing practices. Our methods focus on use of natural organic matter for fertility, relying on simple hand tools that do not require fossil fuels, strategic and chemical-free pest management, encouraging biodiversity of life on the farm, applying mulch and crop rotations, and generally treating the land with respect.
