Shop Local with Oleson’s Food Stores

Many people in northwest Lower Michigan hold the Oleson family name in high-regard. For some, it’s about the gifts the Oleson Family Foundation makes to local organizations; for others, it’s the region’s five Oleson’s Food Stores. But either way, it’s clear that the Oleson family cares deeply about strengthening our community.  

Norconk Farm

Farmers Markets, Juliana Lisuk, Stories

Harry Norconk is weighing asparagus when I arrive at Norconk Farms. Asparagus season is in full swing and he doesn’t have time to sit and chat, so instead we hop onto an RTV and drive out to the fields to pick up crates of freshly harvested asparagus. Driving around the farm we pass acres of asparagus stalks popping up out of the ground waiting to be harvested. Out in the field workers ride along the rows snapping spear after spear out of the ground and sorting into crates to be washed, weighed and packed.
