Green Wagon Farm is a small-scale vegetable venture in Ada, Michigan, growing eleven acres of diverse vegetables and herbs. We’re a verdant patchwork of humble lessons and grand visions as well as a collection of friends, who plant and harvest and eat together for nine months of the year—friends who have become family to each other.
With farmer tans and dirty hands, we pray over our food and our labor, insistent upon producing the most beautiful food in the most ecological way. We love farming, and we are happy to be part of the agrarian renaissance in West Michigan, finding community at the West Michigan Grower’s Group and as part of the Fulton St. Farmers Market.
Our farm is located near the Gerald R. Ford Airport, about twenty minutes from the center of Grand Rapids. You can find our produce at restaurants across the region, a few local groceries, our farmers market stand, or in your CSA box. Please feel free to contact us with questions or to schedule a visit: we’d love to be your farmers. Together, we’ll work to feed the soil and build a deeper earth, one that is more nuanced and more generous.
