The Farm

Fresh produce, farm animals, and exciting opportunities.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

At the Blandford Farm, we offer Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) – a relationship between community members who prefer locally-grown food and the farmers that grow it. CSA members support and invest in our farm by purchasing a “share” of the harvest that they can pick up weekly. Learn more about our 2024 CSA options and view samples of what might come in your weekly share below!

About the Blandford Farm

With 2.5 acres of land, our farm has been growing over 200 different varieties of vegetables since 2010. We are Certified Naturally Grown (CNG), a part of Slow Food of West Michigan (SFWM), Cropping System Certified through the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP), and a Michigan On-Farm Produce Safety (MOFPS) certified farm, which means we grow all our produce using environmentally friendly, healthy practices. We don’t use herbicides or pesticides, and believe the health of the soil directly impacts the quality of produce grown. We monitor soil health through annual soil tests, and use the results to determine which amendments we add to the soil to ensure a healthy crop and nutrient dense food.

Our Farm is a short walk west of the Visitor Center and has many things to offer besides naturally-grown produce. Come greet the goats, say “hello” to the sheep, explore the children’s garden, and play in the farm-themed playscape – the opportunities are endless!

We invite visitors of all ages to enjoy, explore, and engage in nature through our farmed-themed community programs. Tap a tree, learn to garden, gather eggs, paint a pumpkin, enjoy a family bonfire, and more. we provide a variety of unique, hands-on, behind-the-scenes opportunities to learn and connect with nature on the Blandford Nature Center Farm.
