The Shire Farm

We are a recently started 10 acre farm, southeast of Sheridan, Michigan. 2013 was our first growing season. We focus on heirloom and hybrid (nonGMO) varieties of vegetables, fruits, and herbs grown with sustainable practices, such as crop rotation, integrated pest management, and compost for our fertility. All produce is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. A Large Produce Share costs $500 and a Small Produce Share $300, we are also offering a $25 discount off share prices for on-farm pickup.

We also offer pasture-raised eggs, whole chickens and pork raised on pasture and without medicated feed, growth hormones, steroids or antibiotics which we market directly to local people interested in humanely and sustainably raised meat.

For 2014 We are offering something new on the farm, a Whole Diet Share! In this share you will be receiving a half ($800) or whole($950) Pasture Raised Hog at the end of the year, 10 Pasture Raised Chickens in early summer and 1 dozen eggs/week for the duration of the vegetable shares, and a Large Vegetable Share. In 2013 a Half Hog cost around $250.00 and yielded over 75 lbs of meat and our Chickens weighed about 5 lbs and cost $15.00 per chicken. The Full Diet Share is also eligible for the on-farm pickup $25.00 discount--making a half-hog full diet share $775.00 and a whole-hog full diet share $925.00.

We are committed to sustainable agriculture and promoting the health of our animals, plants, soil, and customers. We are committed to promoting the health of our local communities, and living within the limits of the land. Come join The Shire!
