Small-scale Agroforestry in the Periphery of Detroit.

Beaverland Farms is a 2-acre homestead and working farm located in the northwest corner of Detroit.

 

MARKET GARDEN

We grow nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables raised in natural systems that value biological mechanisms and life processes over the use of chemical inputs like fertilizers and pesticides.

REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE

We seek to regenerate the landscape in brightmoor, detroit by emulating ecosystem functions with symbiotic farm enterprises which are economically and environmentally resilient, and which add stability and security to our neighborhood and larger metropolitan community.

COLLABORATION

The farm is a part of a network of growers and businesses in the city. We hope to leverage the resources of our farm to empower ourselves and others in developing and undertaking further regenerative enterprises in the region.

Process-Based Agriculture

We hope that our mission makes clear that we are opposed to the use of pesticides, herbicides, and other synthetic compounds in biological systems. Unfortunately, "organic" agriculture is required to define itself primarily by the absence of those synthetic compounds. We choose instead to define our system more positively, by what we do rather than what we don't do. This is what we call an agricultural system which is process-based rather than input-based. 

Our practices are intended to mimic the complexity and resiliency of a natural ecosystem while yielding the highest-quality edible products. We have developed these practices through research, trial-and-error, and a philosophy of continual (sometimes even structured!) improvement.
