There is no run of the mill day for the Hamiltons. Andy Hamilton and his wife Amy work late nights and early mornings raising three children and operating the decades-old Musgrave Orchard, which they purchased 10 years ago just before it ceased production altogether. Since then, Andy said the family has operated on farm time, building their day around the needs of their 300 apple trees and 2 acre vegetable patch.

Because of the quality of the food, she has had no reason to look into others. – Isaac SmithRead the Full Story

We’re very excited to offer a new Principle Six vendor line of organic fruit products from Michigan.
We'll receive our first order of Omena Organics fruits on April 17th. You can look for some truly delicious cherry, cranberry, blueberry, and apple products—canned, dried, and frozen.
Omena Organics is the result of three generations of growing high quality, sustainably fruit on the spectacular Leelanau peninsula in Michigan. Owners Robert and Jane Weaver say: "Organic produce is better. It is sweeter, more flavorful and has a deeper color." See for yourself!
Leelanau Peninsula is known for its cherries. We found this great recipe for cherry pie at the Omena website, along with recipes for Organic Cherry Cobbler and Organic Cherry Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies.
Omena Organics Cherry Pie
2 cans of Omena Organics Montmorency Tart Cherries in Water
1/2 - 3/4 cup organic, unrefined sugar
3 tablespoons organic tapioca or organic cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon organic almond extract (optional)
1 tablespoon organic butter
2 crusts for a 9-inch pie
• Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
• Drain the cherries and save the juice from only one can.
• In a saucepan stir the juice into the combined mix of cornstarch and sugar.
• Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until thickened.
• Remove from heat.
• Gently stir in cherries and almond extract.
• Pour into crust.
• Vent top crust.
• Bake at 400 degrees 30-40 min.until crust browns and it bubbles.
• Let it cool – and enjoy!
Our Principle Six initiative shines a light on artisan suppliers and small farmers. Omena Organics meets our criteria because it is a relatively small family-owned operation within our region.
Omena Organics is certified organic by Ecocert I.C.O.
The USDA certified Omena Organics as an operation that follows Good Agricultural Practices (GAP).
The Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP) certified Omena Organics as Environmentally Verified.
