Hayes Farms is a family owned and operated farm located just a 15 minute drive from Big Rapids, Michigan. Purchased in 1978 by Joseph C. Hayes, we (his son and wife and 3 boys) continue to farm
without chemicals. We are striving to improve the condition of our buildings and upgrade. Since retiring from milking cows in 2001 we have switched to beef and produce. We started with
little more than a garden, selling from a small farm stand by the roadside. From these simple beginnings, we have been encouraged by our community to become a favorite local supplier of all natural,
chemical free produce and meat at the Farmers Market and several stores in and around Big Rapids, Michigan. As of May 3rd, 2016 we have acheived the goal of becoming Certified Naturally Grown.
We are a family farm that has truly established itself, developing real roots in our community. We grow a wide range of vegetables as well as keeping free-range chickens for eggs and meat and cows for high-quality beef. We have sheep also since 2017. We have valued an organic lifestyle and so we have made the effort to become Certified Naturally Grown, www.cngfarming.org .
Thanks to overwhelming support from the community, Hayes Farms joined other local farmers, vendors, business people and residents to open its first market stall at the Big Rapids Farmer's Market in 2011. Since that time we have striven to provide the freshest, locally-grown produce available in the area. We are also providing the families in Fremont Michigan fresh produce and meat also at the Fremont farmer's market.
Today, we have grown to become a trusted farm for the markets in our locality. Our goal is to provide healthy chemical free vegetables and meat to the community. We never use any chemicals on our plants or land and we use only non-GMO seed.
