Meet the new farmer candidate, Dan!
The farmer search committee has been working all year to find a new farmer to lead our farm. Dan Gannon is a farmer looking to relocate to this area and has found that our farm might be a good fit for him and his family. Dan will be at the farm this Thursday, August 13th at 12:30pm. Current and prospective members are encouraged to come meet him and/or join in some of the Thursday work party tasks. Though this is an outdoor event, please help keep each other healthy by wearing a mask and observing social distance whenever possible. There will also be a zoom call later on at 7pm for those who can’t make it to the farm.

Our beloved Randy, always ready with help, a smile, wisdom, good ideas, and hard work passed out of his body earlier this month.
He died really happy to be working on the farm with a sense of hope and purpose. We are accepting donations in Randy’s memory to help his family during this difficult time . His joy and work will be felt on the farm forever. Please click here to make a donation in memory of Randy Wright.
The Community Farm of Ann Arbor is looking for a farmer to lead an established community devoted to biodynamic agriculture as soon as possible.
The Community Farm of Ann Arbor is a 30-year old biodynamic CSA (community supported agriculture project) which has been in its current location in Chelsea, MI for 25 years serving the greater Ann Arbor area. It encompasses a supportive community of about 60 member families who enjoy celebrating the gifts of the earth and community, 7 acres of cultivated fields, a 20-acre hay field, pasture, 2 heritage barns (that have housed cows and goats), a chicken coop, bees in an apiary, several tractors (including a solar tractor) with implements, a greenhouse and cold frames.
We are looking for a devoted biodynamic farmer to begin no later than early spring 2021, who can feed the member families while caring for the regenerative health of the earth, manage day to day finances, and help maintain the farm as a center of well-being.
If you are interested please send a letter of introduction and description of experience, intention, and contact information to:
If you have questions you can call Karen at 734-475-7451.
Biodynamic Agriculture works in harmony with the natural world to leave the soil and the entire farm ecosystem healthier year after year. The wide variety of produce grown is nutrient dense, trace mineral rich, and flavor saturated. The community supporting this Sacred Agriculture is vibrant, creative, supportive, educationally focused and economically diverse. All things grow with love!
The Community Farm of Ann Arbor is located at 1525 S. Fletcher Rd. Chelsea, MI 48118. To find the farm (driving directions and map), click here.
