Tuckers Farm has been growing produce for almost 100 years! Grandma and Grandpa moved the family to the Farm from Toledo in 1915. Mom and Dad began farming together in 1939 on 55 acres. We took over in 2002 and our daughter is now the 4th generation, growing vegetables on the same family farm for 97 years and counting!
The farm is now 5 acres and we grow a wide variety of produce, including strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, eggplant, watermelons, squash, beans, cabbage, and okra. We also have free range chicken eggs available at certain times throughout the year.
We eat what we grow, so we are customers too! We understand the importance of a clean and healthy food supply. We limit our use of any chemicals and instead rely on natural and sustainable growing methods! Fall of 2011 we completed our first hoop house (high tunnel) and began our transition to organic farming inside. We took produce to Toledo Farmers Market through the winter; like spinach, lettuce, salad mix, radishes, beets, and turnips.
Spring of 2011 we were verified by the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (for more info www.maeap.org). Soil and water conservation practices we employ on the farm include crop rotation; residue, nutrient, and pest management; wildlife habitat management; windbreak establishment; composting; filter strips along the drainage ditch; and drip irrigation.
