Why We Farm

  •  

    Here at Brookwood Fruit Farm, family and farming go hand-in-hand. Since 1827, generations of Bristols have farmed and lived within the same one mile stretch in Almont, Michigan. Through farming we create and pass on a legacy to our children that can live on beyond ourselves. Every day we set an example that shows that commitment, caring, and hard work really do provide "fruits for our labor." Few other professions afford the luxury of working with family on a day-to-day basis, and that close working relationship creates even closer personal relationships. The strength of those bonds are exactly why generations of Bristols have continued to stay in farming.

     

    Farming is our family's business, but we also strive to extend that feeling to all of our non-family employees too. From the sorters and graders, to the sales staff, to the harvest crew, everyone is treated with the same kindness and respect that we extend to our families.
