This region was first settled between 1824 and 1828, with these three villages being founded some 50 years later. Various modes of transportation, such as Port Huron, Lake Michigan Railway and the Michigan Southern Railroad set this up to be a busy produce marketing area throughout the next century and beyond. The Lower Peninsula is still home to many farming operations.
In 2008, we started harvesting in Imlay City to cut down on transportation. In 2010 we saved 129,028 food miles in that year alone. Decreasing truck miles means we are able to deliver our produce at the peak of freshness and reduce our carbon footprint.
