RC Organic Farms has been farming at our current location in Macomb County since 1945 when my Grandfather Norvel bought this farm and began Dairy farming. My Father Ron Campau (hence RC) was born here at the farm where he continued Dairy Farming until 1997 a year after he certified the farm to organics and started crop farming.
Sadly, he passed away in 2014, we miss him dearly and work hard daily to fulfill his dream to preserve the family farm and increase awareness of the importance of organic farming and eating locally.
In 1996, our farm received organic certification for the first time, we have now been certified organic for 20+ years! We are very proud to be a safe harbor for thousands of bees, butterflies, plants and birds.
In 2003, we began our CSA farm with just 6 families. We have grown over time and now share our harvest with over 100 families each year.
In addition to the CSA vegetable garden, we raise hundreds of chickens and turkeys on pasture along with a few lamb, pork and beef each year. We also farm the sun! In 2011, we added Solar Power panels to the farm. These solar panels enable us to generate ALL of our own power and enough to share with our neighbors as well. We are excited to be Macomb Counties only SOLAR POWERED CERTIFIED ORGANIC FARM and proud to pass on our sustainable farming heritage to the fourth generation of children growing up on this family farm.
It is our desire to raise high quality, great tasting, organic produce for ourselves and members of our community through the use of sustainable farming methods. We offer our members a generous ‘share’ of the garden harvest for a fair price. This price is designed to support our efforts in the seeding, weeding, growing, maintaining, harvesting and packaging of these wonderful garden products.
Membership in our Community Market Garden (CSA) will provide you with a wide array of fresh, in season, ‘grown in my own backyard’ quality garden produce without the hassle of planning and maintaining a large garden yourself. We will be doing the work for you.
Members will be welcome to visit the garden and ask questions each week when picking up their share of the harvest at the farm. We are conveniently located in northern Macomb County just north of Mount Clemens.
We know that local is best, so don’t pass up the opportunity to nourish your body with great tasting, organic produce grown by a farmer in your own neighborhood. To learn more about CSA and our farm please visit our website www.rcorganicfarms.com
