Also in 2011, Farm 651 constructed a 20×14 chicken coop made entirely out of recycled pallets. Here, they raised 30 free-range chickens–only four of which were lost to the wild and the friendly–albeit hungry–farm dog. The year also saw an organic garden placed adjacent to the farmer’s market, which carries the freshest produce found in Leelanau County. Additionally, a recently built 14×32 cedar-sided livestock barn will be the home to many future goats and cows. To round out the year’s successes, the kitchen modifications in the Farmer’s Market were completed, providing an area for students to create masterpieces with the farm’s fresh produce.
