Thread Creek Farm
Grand Blanc, MichiganAll of our crops are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. All of our food crops and many of our decorative crops are grown from organic seeds, either raised on the farm or purchased from a certified source. We use mechanical cultivation and old fashioned hoeing along with cover crops and crop rotation to keep weeds and plant diseases under control. We are working on becoming enrolled in the Michigan Agricultural Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP). The MAEAP program is a voluntary groundwater stewardship program created by the state to help farmers care for one of our most precious resources: fresh water. We hope to have all the requirements for the program met by early 2013, weâre almost there now! We believe that wildlife is an important part of our farm ecosystem, so we have set aside almost 90 acres of our farm as wildlife habitat. These areas include the flood plain along Thread Creek, as well as several other wet fields which are planted with native trees, shrubs, grasses and forbs which provide year round habitat for many different species. We have donated the development rights for much of our farm to the North Oakland Headwaters Land Conservatory, with a conservation easement, to ensure that the farm will continue to be an undeveloped open space providing an agricultural livelihood for our family and habitat for wildlife for generations to come. If you have questions about our farming practices, please contact us, weâd be happy to discuss them with you.
