Welcome to Morganic Farm!
Follow us on Facebook for our latest farm news.
Morganic Farm is a 30-acre family-owned and operated farm in northwest lower Michigan. We are located only 30 minutes south of Traverse City on M 113. We raise heritage hogs, fiber and meat rabbits, dairy goats, ducks and laying hens year round. In the summer we raise meat chickens and turkeys and run a small Vegetable CSA.
We grow our vegetables using no-till ecological and organic growing practices with organic seeds. Our animals are currently fed non-GMO feed. We are in the process of researching a local source of organic non-soy feed.
Our goal is to produce great-quality food while improving our soil and land. We do not own a tractor, and do all gardening by hand. One of our other goals is to preserve the heritage breeds of animals selected for their resilience, temperament, and diversity. Heritage breeds are usually more hardy and can take more nutrients from the land, which make them both suitable and economical for our farm. This also helps make the farm more sustainable in the long run.
By supporting local farms, you are enriching the community and keeping your dollars here in Michigan.
Stuart was born and raised in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. He attended the University of Toledo and University of Montana, where he studied film and received a BA in Native American studies. A traveler at heart, he soon found himself working in a small copy shop in Alaska, in July of 1996, where he met his future wife, Genevieve.
I (Genevieve) was born and raised in the wild beauty of Alaska, and attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks, receiving a BA in Teaching and English Literature. Together, Stuart and I spent nearly a year traveling the world and teaching English in Slovakia. By the time we had reached Michigan in 2008, we had spent three years in each: Montana, Alaska, and Oregon. We also had two children, Lovisa and Finn. Surrounded by the raw beauty of Northern Michigan, we found our way to a bit of land on the Old Mission Peninsula. Chickens, turkeys, rabbits, ducks, a thriving garden and an English Shepherd pup soon arrived. Back then, we were known as Bricolage farm. Unfortunately, people had trouble pronouncing the beautiful French name and we opted for Morganic Farm when we bought our new farm and land in Fife Lake, Michigan. Morganic, to us, stands for more organic, more Michigan, and more of a connection to the earth and the organic matter that makes farming and food possible. Since we have arrived on our beautiful Morganic Farm, so much has changed. Our 30 acres of dull clear-cut have become a wilderness of meadows and forest. We are greatly humbled to now see our eggs at Oryana, or to hear about how much our customers love the food we grow. It shows how far we have come just in the last few years. To all of our faithful customers: Without you, Morganic Farm wouldn’t be possible. Thank you.
~ Genevieve, Stuart, Lovisa and Finn.
