Local Vendor Focus July 2012: Seeley Farm

Local Vendor of the Month: Seeley Farm
by Jen Whaley, YFC Produce Manager

What do you get when you cross an English major with a Sociology major?  A great new local farm!  

Alex Cacciari and Mark Nowak of Seeley Farm are in their second year of production at the Tilian Farm Development Center in Ann Arbor Township. The farm specializes in seasonal salad greens; their trademark products are their ready-to-eat salad mixes packaged in clamshells similar to major distributors like Earthbound Farms.  I asked Mark why they chose this niche: “There was a need for good-quality, year-round, washed and dried greens,” he told me, “we wanted to provide an alternative to the ones from California.”

Mark and Alex met in college in Oregon and lived in upstate New York – working on a sheep farm on Seeley Rd – before returning to Michigan to pursue their farming dreams.
After working on various local farms, they found the farm incubator program at Tilian. Demand has been good, so when their tenure at Tilian expires at the end of this year they’re hoping to find the right piece of land to continue growing their quality greens.
