Ten Hens Farm

We are a family of three running a year-round farm based on sustainable production and business practices. We are located 10 miles North of Lansing, Michigan, and grow in the field in-season and harvest from our 34 ft X 96 ft hoophouse throughout the year. Our second hoophouse is going up in Spring 2011.

Besides farming we are also involved with the larger farming community through our other jobs. Dru is the Director of the Michigan Farmers Market Association and is also a Ph.D. candidate at Michigan State studying Horticulture and Community, Agriculture, Recreation and Resource Studies. Adam is the season extension outreach specialist for MSU's Department of Horticulture. He works with farmers throughout the state and country. Lydia is two now and is already helping out in many ways.

Our farm name, Ten Hens Farm, came from a trade we made not long after moving to our 100+ year old farmhouse in 2007. We helped an area farmer build a hoophouse and in exchange she gave us what we thought were ten hens. We named the farm and began to chase our dreams. As the summer passed we soon ended up with five hens and five roosters. We decided to keep one rooster around while the other four found their way to the stew pot. When we started in 2008 we were really 9 hens and a rooster, but it just didn't quite have the same ring as Ten Hens. In the Fall of 2009, we expanded our flock and now have about 40 hens.

We are so happy to have returned to Michigan, where we both haved lived for most of our lives, and look forward to years of good food and farming in a place that means so much to us. We welcome you to contact us to learn more about our farm and how you can purchase our products.
