New Sun Farm Products
We believe in practicing regenerative agriculture, which focuses on building soil, improving soil health, encouraging beneficial organisms of all sizes to thrive with us, and leaving the land in better shape than we found it.
Our products are grown with care, and we strive to offer you and your family the freshest, high-quality and convenient farm products including heritage breed pork & eggs, fruits, herbs, and year-round vegetables.
We grow in the off-season in a passive solar hoophouse, which allows us to provide fresh vegetables during those times of year when it's too cold outside to grow plants.
In the winter and spring, the hoophouse grows sweet, tender salad and cooking greens, like lettuce, kale, and spinach, as well as carrots, beets, and fresh herbs like dill, parsley, and scallions.
In the summer, the hoophouse warms earlier than outside, so look for early tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers, as well as some unusual vegetables for up north, like sweet potatoes and ginger.
Farm-Fresh Eggs from Free-Range Chickens
Our flock is made up of a variety of cold-hardy, docile chicken breeds that are free-range and happy as can be!
The eggs are super nutritious and delicious! The yolks are deep orange, indicating that they are full of important nutrients.
These brown & white eggs are available in limited quantities year round for $3/dozen.
This year, we will welcome new little piglets to our farm, just as we did 2 years ago. They are Mangalitsa pigs, a heritage Hungarian breed that has thick hair and is very well-suited to living through Michigan winters.
Mangalitsa pork is world-renowned for its flavorful pork fat that marbleizes tender, rosy meat. It is full of antioxidants, and the fat is high in unsaturated fats, making it healthier than beef fat.
We provide our pigs with plenty of room to roam and forage, and they also get to eat a lot of candy discarded from recipe testing from our sister company, Woodland Confectionary!
Pork will be available in 2021, so stay tuned to find out how you can get some!
Producing tasty food is what we live for, so we couldn't just stop at fruits, vegetables, herbs, pork, and eggs. We started a candy business too!
Woodland Confectionary crafts handmade chocolates using high quality, sustainably-produced and local ingredients, many of which come (or will come) from New Sun Farm.
