The North Farm at the Michigan State University Upper Peninsula Research and Extension Center in Chatham, MI is an incubator farm specializing in diversified organic vegetable production, research, education, and outreach for northern latitude climates. Starting in 2015, they will offer on-site workshops, online classes, and opportunities for beginning farmers to live and work on the farm to learn about sustainable farming in the challenging northern climate of the U.P. Their focus is building healthy soils, food, people, and communities. Using organic and sustainable practices coupled with season extension technologies, they grow a wide variety of vegetables. The farm functions as both a production and teaching facility, and aims to provide healthy, fresh, nutrient-dense produce to the local markets.
