What fun we have sharing our farm. People love to see how we grow differently and to taste soups from our on-site test kitchen. The perennial fruit forest! The natural springs! The lotus flowers! The gardens upon gardens of low-maintenance perennials! This summer the word's gotten out. Folks from far and wide have begun to come and to see for themselves what's growing in southwest Michigan’s glorious fruitbelt. It's been a pleasure sharing and learning.

About Lotus Flower Farm
We grow using biodynamic principles: seed diversity (not just rotation), multi-purpose shrub, tree, and perennial planting, no-till (and this year, almost entirely, no-dig!) farming, water retention (read rock pits), twelve-month growing cycles, and holistic ideas that come from the soil. Our farm is a site that shows what soil can do. This year, the farm’s fifth, has really shown us what soil can do!
