Try our variety of freshly harvested, nutritious and delicious fruits and veggies grown with care on our small family farm in Webster Township, Washtenaw County. We are also a State of Michigan licensed tree nursery, selling bare root trees and shrubs. We are certified USDA organic for our entire operation - everything is authentically grown and visits to the farm to see our operation can be scheduled. Shannon Brines began authentically growing vegetables and fruits as a child growing up in Dexter and established Brines Farm on that family land in 2004 due to his passion for slow food and sustainable, year-round agriculture. He began selling year-round at farmers markets shortly thereafter and offered the area's first fresh produce Winter CSA share program a few years later. Shannon was selected as a member of the US delegation to participate in Terra Madre 2008 in Turin, Italy: a world slow food meeting focused on increasing small-scale, traditional, and sustainable food production. Shannon is an Applied Geographer and Lecturer at the University of Michigan School for Environment & Sustainability interested in land use, agriculture, food systems, public health, and sustainable design. He is active in our local food community organizations: currently serving as vice-chair of the Washtenaw County Food Policy Council; chair of Slow Food Huron Valley; and member of the UM Sustainable Food Program advisory team; and previously on HomeGrown Festival steering committee, Local Food Summit steering committee, Greenbelt Advisory Commission, and on the Tilian Farm Development Center steering committee. In 2012 Brines Farm expanded its operation in northern Webster Township by purchasing a neighboring historical 80 acre farm. Brines Farm offers a variety of internship opportunities as well as periodic open houses for the public.
