To provide quality goods and produce fresh from the farm. We operate with a mission to benefit both the environment and the community while offering pure Northwest Michigan produce directly to our customers.
BrixStone Farms operates with a passion to preserve and continually cultivate the precious Northwest Michigan farmland. It is imperative to satisfy consumers and the environment simultaneously, finding the balance is accomplished by being good stewards of the land. Good practices include harvesting maple syrup from the forest while keeping wildlife habitat intact and planting new orchards at higher densities requiring less ground. Another unique practice around BrixStone Farms is the use of windbreaks and careful management of wooded parcels. Forested lands serve as critical infrastructure to maintain proper soil composition and drainage while also yielding sweet maple sap to create BrixStone Maple Syrup. Harvesting from the woods and the orchards is what keeps BrixStone moving forward, truly capturing all that every season has to offer.
BRIXSTONE FARMS IS PROUD TO BE A MAEAP ENVIRONMENTALLY ASSURED FARM.
“Why did you decide to pursue MAEAP Verification?
“I decided to become verified as I take great pride in being a steward of the land, taking no more from it that what can be sustained. We will tap the maple forest while keeping the habitat intact for wildlife and our new orchards will be planted in higher densities on less ground to lower our footprint and overall acreage needs. I think that it is important to let our visiting customers know that we are environmentally conscious and there is no better way to convey that message than having the MAEAP verification. Through the verification process we have been able to develop a clear business plan with protecting the environment at the highest of priorities.”
