Our Partner Farms
We are proud to offer fruit grown by Mick Klug Farm. Mick Klug grew up on a 40-acre farm in St. Joseph Michigan his parents established in the 1930s. He took ownership in 1974, and has expanded the land to over 120 acres. Mick and his daughter, Abby Schilling, work together to produce delicious fresh fruit for several farmers market stands, restaurants in Chicago and us so we can share it with you!
The Klugs are committed to sustainable agriculture and promoting locally grown produce. They use a growing system called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Farmers who use the IPM approach conduct extensive monitoring of insect and disease problems to ensure that a synthetic pesticide or fungicide is only used as a last resort and only in the smallest quantity necessary. This approach minimizes the impact on the natural environment.
