Business changes, Passion doesn’t

Baker's Green Acres Farm - Beyond Organic Michigan Farm

The more things change, the more things stay the same.

So the saying goes.  Did 2017 bring change for you?  Maybe 2018 is the year those changes are really felt.

This year is our year of change.  Our business model is changing.  But our passion is still the same.  You won’t be able to get a pork chop from the online store any more.  Or a couple pounds of bacon.  The powers frown on keeping a freezer of meat for sale without their permission.

HOWEVER, we still have pigs.  We are still ordering chicks.  We are happy to be your farmer!  We can still sell whole and half hogs for butcher.  You can get a whole pile of pork cut the way you want it!  In some cases you even get cuts and seasonings that we, as a commercial business, couldn’t offer. We can also custom raise chickens for you.  They are your chickens; we’ll be your farmer.  You can read details about the Chicken CSA here.

ANYONE CAN FARM: our passion for bringing you good food and good information has not changed.  We’ll continue to make videos, write the occassional blog, answer the phone.  We’re planning a Hog Harvest class this fall, the first weekend of November.  We’re still custom processing your chickens so you can raise your own birds even if the final step isn’t for you. (Check out this post about us doing custom processing, including the kids’ input on the job.)

Mark tells you a bit more about the whys of the change, and how we’re staying the same:
