Farming Creates New Generation of Farmers, Encouraging Families to ‘Taste the Difference’

You can find squash, tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce in almost every county in Northeast Michigan. Local farmers have been gaining momentum as the top alternative to chain–grocery stores on the sunrise side.

Molly Stepanski and her husband, Dion have been farming for 5 years and they’re hoping that other people find their inner flame to start producing their own food or buy from a local farm.

That wisdom is centuries of farming techniques and tips that have helped Michigan become the leading producer of 8 different crops in the United States.

With so many different types of fresh vegetables available, farmers like the Stepanski’s aren’t surprised that more people on the sunrise side are switching to buying locally sourced produce.
