In 2006, at the age of five-years-old, young entrepreneur Troy Walsh was to start a home-school project at his local Farmer's Market. But, Troy had other idea's for this home-school project.
He intended to start a full-time business from it. From that day forward he has stayed true to his focus and today it is called Chickapea Farms.
The steps we take to be better stewards of the planet
For over 15 years, we have taken great pride in maintaining age-old Artisan values and traditions with no compromise in quantity. We honestly bring a product to market worth the consumer's hard earned money.
So as not to harm Mother Earth, we consciously focus on using the most renewable resources and greenest processes to keep a low carbon footprint from start to finish for each of our product's existence.
We strive to eliminate plastic and fossil fuel materials from our products and their packaging, and take the extra steps so our products and packaging can be compostable, and if not, repurposable.
In making our products, there is no out-sourcing or mass-production machinery; just hands on, strong backbones and a lot of elbow grease to create durable, high quality, green products and packaging.
We believe in local supporting local. We buy local. We sell local. If not harvested from our own land, then we scrutinize sources in the sequence of: our home area within Michigan, the rest of Michigan, the Midwest.
Even though Troy calls on his friends, family and mentors for help, he's always at the helm of Chickapea Farms, leading with love in his heart and quality on his mind! Thank you for walking a green path with us.
After meeting so many farmers during his journey with Chickapea Farms, and helping admin the FB group "Shop Michigan Farms", Troy wanted to do more to help link farmers with their communities. That's how "Mi Farm Network" started. We strive to bring Michigan farms together with their communities for the greater good, education and ability for farm-direct product purchases.
Please tell those you know about Mi Farm Network and help plant seeds of growth within your community.
