Mick Klug Farm is a 120-acre farm in St. Joseph, MI, that grows and provides more than 30 varieties of fruit and vegetable crops to Chicago-area markets, restaurants, breweries, and small grocery stores.

They received a $4,865 grant to establish hedgerows of native plants throughout the property. After discussion with local experts, Mick Klug opted to plant patches of clover for bee habitat and rent honeybee hives. Owner Abby Schilling told us that, “berry yields were of exceptional quality proximate to clover plantings, indicating highly successful pollination for these crops [and there was] noticeable prevention of soil erosion and wind damage.”
