Beaverland Farms

Community supported agriculture enables consumers to purchase agricultural shares in order to have regular access to a homestead’s offerings. At Beaverland Farms, shareholders receive weekly boxes of produce containing seasonal fruits and vegetables grown on the 2 acre Brightmoor homestead and farm. (There’s also an option to add a pasture-raised, organic, frozen whole chicken, if interested.) Although shipments begin April 17th, Metro Detroiters can start buying stocks today – early risers gets the tomato?

Dot’s Market

Dot’s Market was launched as a resource for Detroit’s food insecure residents during the pandemic. Its mission is to provide the needy with fresh products. Support the cause by buying a curated box of fruits and vegetables for yourself or by giving a loved one fresh, healthy produce. In a spirit of giving, donate just $ 15 and Dot’s will deliver a box to someone in need. Dot’s Market Box, $ 25;


Shopping for groceries online has become increasingly popular in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Few large retailers allow shoppers to assist local farms while browsing virtual aisles for their supply needs. Farmstop, on the other hand, sources its products, meat, dairy products and eggs only from sustainable, fair-trade farms in Michigan. If you are looking for hearty delicacies or baked goods, the snack aisle is the right place for you. Farmstop;
