Hick's is a small dairy farm located in North Branch, Michigan. Kevin moved here with his family in August of 1963; he was 3 years old. His father, a General Motors worker and farmer by heritage, would work at GM by day and run the farm by night. Soon, Kevin started milking cattle and assumed full responsibility in 1978.
As Kevin matured and adopted the farming lifestyle, he implemented the organic paradigm and was certified as such in 1997; and he also follows the OEFFA standard!
Through living the life and absorbing traditional knowledge passed from his parents, he understands that "organic" is not merely using those products approved by the FDA, but a lifestyle. It is one of sustainability. Of the cycle of life. Of crop rotations and feeding the soil. Of nurturing all under his care from beneficial microbes in the dirt to his herd of cattle.
His choice is to remain small so that all aspects of life on the farm remain in balance. A happy cow is a healthy cow producing nutritious food for a healthy, happy life.
So when searching for a co-op to serve your family, go to the one who taught the rest. . . Choose Hick's!
