Welcome To RC Organic Farms
Local Organic Farm & Community Garden CSA in Northern Macomb County
We are a 4th Generation Farming Family
RC Organic Farms has been farming at our current location in Macomb County since 1945 when my Grandfather Norvel bought this farm and began Dairy farming. My Father Ron Campau (hense RC) was born here at the farm, where he continued farming organically until he passed away in 2014.
After graduating from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Crop and Soil Science, I came back to the farm I grew up on to maintain our family farm and work to increase awareness within our community of the importance in eating locally and organically. I am proud to pass on our sustainable farming heritage to the fourth generation of Campau children growing up on our family farm and to our community.
Certified uSDA Organic
It's our desire to raise high quality, great tasting, organic produce for ourselves and the members of our community through the use of sustainable farming methods.
Our farm has been certified organic since 1996, for 20+ years we have been committed to producing chemical free foods for the benefit of people, animals, plants and the environment! We are very proud to be a safe harbor for thousands of bees, butterflies, wildflowers and birds.
Community Garden CSA Membership Shares
In 2003 we began our CSA farm with just 6 families. We have grown over time and now share the harvest from our Community Market Garden with over 100 families each year!
We have several garden share options available this season so you can choose which share package works best for your family! Membership in our Community Market Garden will provide you with a wide array of fresh, in season, ‘grown in my own backyard’ quality garden produce without the inconvenience of planning and maintaining a garden yourself. That's right - we will be doing the work for you!
we're Macomb County's Only Solar Powered Farm
In 2011 we added solar power panels to our farm. Pictured here is our 19.8 kW grid tied solar system operating under a net metering agreement with DTE. These solar panels enable us to generate ALL of our own power and enough to share with our neighbors as well.
Benefits of Renewable Energies
Switching to solar power can reduce carbon emissions in the United States alone, by billions of tons per year. Solar energy reduces our families ‘carbon footprint’ and dependence on fossil fuels. Fossil fuel supplies are nearly depleted and the suns energy is basically limitless. The sun produces 120,000 terawatts of power. Our planet currently uses 16 terawatts of power.
WE ARE PROUD TO BE
MACOMB COUNTY'S ONLY SOLAR POWERED CERTIFIED ORGANIC FARM
