Apple Acres Farm is an off-grid, solar-powered family farm located on 14 acres just minutes from downtown Houghton, the Michigan Tech Trails, and the Keweenaw Peninsula. We began our small-scale, regenerative farm in 2020 on a heritage apple orchard that slopes into a mature forest with 100-year old conifers and hardwoods bordered by a tributary to the Pilgrim River, a trout stream.
-
We believe that small is both beautiful and sustainable. Our farming practices are guided by what our land needs and can support. We use permaculture design
principles to build topsoil, to improve our farm's resiliency, and to grow, forage, and raise nutritious and delicious foods.

We welcome visitors to stop by Apple Acres Farm to take a farm tour, to enjoy a farm stay, or to take home one of our farm fresh products!

YOUR FARM ADVENTURE AWAITS

FARM ANIMALS

When you visit our farm you'll be greeted by our friendly free-range chickens, possibly spot one of our honey bees foraging for nectar, and see our goats happily browsing away. Our regenerative farm harnesses our animal's natural behavior to help us with various land management needs.

OFF-GRID FARM STAYS AND TOURS

It's not just our crops that are powered by the sun - thanks to our 5 kW solar system, our farm is 100% off-grid. We offer modern farm stays as well as tours for those interested in learning more about or directly experiencing what it is like to live entirely off-grid.

FARM FRESH PRODUCTS

We began farming because we wanted to eat safe, healthy, and nutritious foods. As first-generation farmers we love sharing what we grow, raise, and forage including our maple syrup, honey, free-range eggs, wild mushrooms, garden produce, and more. All of our products are made in small batches from scratch right here on the farm.
