~Welcome to Stoney Beach Farm!

Thanks for stopping by!  We are a family farm raising a variety of small fruits but currently focusing on our hydroponic strawberries in Traverse City, Michigan.  With the tip of Old Mission Peninsula crossing the 45th parallel, we find ourselves on a unique stretch of land that juts out into Grand Traverse Bays nearly 22 miles.  This particular geography makes it ideal for fruit growing and provides for scenic vistas overlooking East and West Grand Traverse Bay.  It is also this particular geography that lends the farm its name... we have a stony beach.

We are dedicated to providing healthy food by raising quality small fruits and other produce without the use of synthetic chemical pesticides.

Our goals include:

  • Producing quality products vs. quantity
  • Healthy natural foods without unnatural residues and additives
  • Helping our soils reach self-sustaining nutrient status
  • Use of only natural biological and organic methods of pest control
  • Promote and preserve local agriculture
  • Enhance the environment through careful land use practices

We are one of the few U-pick farms in the region and we offer a unique "ache free" strawberry picking experience. Our strawberries are grown vertically so you can pick standing up. We use a local licensed food producer to convert some of our fruit to premium "over the counter" specialties. 

Feel free to  explore the site to learn more about us.  Be sure to check out our U-pick/products pages to see what what is available in season. Thanks again for dropping in on us.  Hope to see you soon!
