A connection to the earth, a presence in the community.

Fat Toaster Farm is located on the orchard ridge of Kent City, Michigan, just one mile north of the tiny village of Casnovia and only 25 minutes north of Grand Rapids. After farming for over eight years in Rockford, Michigan, we moved to a more spacious home and property in January of 2018. We’re committed to doing all we can to grow and raise ethical food for our table, alongside sharing fiber arts, animal husbandry, meals, social justice, and opportunities for education with our community.  Here is how you can support us in that effort:
