Years ago, our family restored a 100 year old red post and beam barn on a small farm in southwest Michigan. This beautiful barn inspired our first name “Red Barn Farm” and the family has spent over a decade growing the finest blueberries possible. We are excited to have incorporated an image of a Red Barn in the logo for Better Way Farms as a reminder of our history.
From the very beginning we had a desire to share the bounty of our farm with others. In the early days, we picked, packed, and hand delivered boxes of conventional blueberries for friends, family, and members of our community.
When we came to understand the benefits of organic food grown using regenerative farming methods (a Better Way) there was no turning back. In 2019, our main farm is 100% USDA Organic and we have other farms that continue to be in transition to organic. We are blessed by the demand for regeneratively grown Michigan blueberries. Today we are partnering with grocery stores throughout the Great Lakes region to provide you with the best blueberries possible.
In recent years, our farm has grown and now includes additional crops and products. Our mission has been refined as we commit ourselves to regenerative organic farming — through the restoration of the soil and growing the most nutritious produce possible. We want to farm differently, to farm in a better way. We took this opportunity to relaunch as Better Way Farms — A better way for the soil, A better way for the berry, A better way for you.
Better Way Farms is a family owned and operated farm. But it has grown beyond a strictly nuclear family, as we involve others with a shared commitment to a Better Way.
