Galbraith Farms

(Petersburg,MI)

Galbraith Farms is a local producer of a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables. The farm is operated by myself, Doug Galbraith and my wife Karin Koek. In the thirty years I have been farming a few things have left a lasting impression on me. One of them is the IMMENSITY of the blessings which have been conferred on us in the way of productive soils and a moderate climate. Few places on earth are so richly blessed as the region in which we farm. On their own, these blessings should have given place to a durable, diverse and prosperous agriculture, and a healthy society. Yet a day scarcely passes that a scan of the news doesn't include stories of widespread ill health related to diet, and trouble on our nation's farms. It seems to me that this paradox increases as the separation between farmers and consumers widens. Happily, it also seems that consumers and farmers who seek to bridge this separation find their counterparts reaching just as eagerly toward them. LocalHarvest is a great opportunity to reach out in this way. If you haven't already, please look at our profile. The flavor and quality of our produce will be a new expeience for some of you and a happy return for others. My experience in growing good produce is complimented by Karin's talent in preparing and preserving food at home. Let us share our produce and our knowledge with you. Come and see us at market or give us a call or e-mail and swing by the farm Doug and Karin Galbraith Farms
