Our Food - Creswick Farms

Sammit and I had a share in a meat CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) in 2010.  I won't mention the name of it, but if you'd like to know you can contact me directly.  We bough a full sized year long share having not tasted their meat ahead of time.  That was a mistake.  The farm was great, the people were wonderful, but we didn't care for the taste of their products.  When it came time to renew in 2011, we didn't sign a contract and I went on a search for a new meat/egg farmer.  I came across Creswick Farms.

Creswick Farms is owned and operated by the Creswick family.  They are located in Ravenna, MI which is a little north of Grand Rapids.  Their prices are fantastic for the quality pasture raised beef, chicken, pork, lamb, and eggs they provide.  We buy once a month or every other month and pick up at their drop location in Novi, MI (about 20 minutes from where we live right now).

Here are a few things I love about Creswick Farms:
  • Their commitment to healthy, happy, pasture raised animals
  • Their fantastic Easter Smoked Hams!
  • The fact that I can go to their farm and see their operation (and pet their dog ^_^)
  • The huge line we wait in each time we pick up an order at our nearest drop - I love seeing so many people going out of their way to get good food.
  • Their relationship with Door to Door Organics (where we often get our produce)
  • Their specialty meats: bacon cheddar brats & honey bacon are some of the best!
  • Their 10% bulk discount
  • Their awesome website

  1. I'll have to look into them! We're looking at buying into a CSA or buying half of a cow, pig, etc and freezing.

    Thanks for sharing!
