The Kalamazoo Farmers’ Market and the Holland Farmers’ Market are the primary outlets for our produce and with great pleasure we will be attending both on Saturdays throughout the season. The market is a great way to meet directly with our community and not only to be a source for food, but also as a source for information and as a window in to a different way of living. Organic or not, it is important to know where your food is coming from and how it’s grown, and we believe that in this knowledge comes empowerment
Understory Farm and Orchard is home to one of the few state-certified cider mills still producing cider the old-fashioned way, with a hand-cranked screw press without preservatives or pasteurization. The mill itself is over 100 years old, updated with modern accessories to produce a safe and wholesome product that is hard to beat for flavor and quality. The mill is only operational in the fall and is available for custom pressing, and our cider can be found at the Kalamazoo Farmers’ Market and the Holland Farmers’ Market, as well as at the farm. We also offer bulk deals on cider and and will work with you to get exactly what you are looking for.
