Argus Farm Stop has a close relationship with the farmers we work with. We know our farmers, and we visit their farms.
Argus Farm Stop sells produce for a wide variety of farms in our local area. We know our farmers, and visit their farms. They deliver in person to our store, so often customers can ask questions of them directly.
Growing practices are a constant topic of conversation here, as our customers want to learn more about what they are consuming.
We offer products from many farms using natural, organic or certified organic growing practices, because this is what our customers request. Our signage tells you the growing practices of each farm, and our staff can give you details on any of our local farms. Several of the farms that we sell for are using more conventional practices and this is always clearly specified on signage.
We are able to offer produce (and seeds and plant starts, in season) featuring Ark of Taste products, which focus on the taste qualities of the produce, not shipability or storage features. Ann Arbor is host to not one, but TWO seed companies growing Ark of Taste seeds and seedlings.
