Ready for some farm-fresh produce from a local Old Mission Peninsula farm? Me, too! Local Yokels Farm Stand is opening for the season today, and I can’t wait to start stopping by there for those super-fresh veggies, fruits, plants and other farm items.
They are open daily from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. at 13130 Center Road (the old Dohm farm near the Township Hall, for longtime OMPers).

I especially can’t wait for those strawberries – read more about the luscious fruit – and Local Yokels background and mission – here. Ninety-eight percent of their plants are grown by owners Ben and Jen Bramer right here on the OMP. It doesn’t get more local than that.
Today’s offerings include:
- Arugula – $5/bag
- Baby Lettuce Mix – $5/bag
- Spinach- $5/bag
- Radishes – $3/bunch
- Fresh Basil – $5/pint
- Transplants – $6 each (Tomato, Rosemary, French Tarragon, Thyme and Spearmint)
For the safety of yourself and others – and because of the small space in the farm stand – they ask that you adhere to social distancing guidelines and keep a minimum distance of six feet between you and other customers. Two people are allowed in the stand at one time.
The farm stand is self serve and not staffed, so plan to bring exact change or your own pen if you’re writing a check.
Visit their website here, and on Instagram and Facebook. They are great about posting updates on their social media accounts.
If you have any questions, call them at (231) 223-7900, or email [email protected].
I stopped by yesterday and bought some lovely radishes, baby spinach and mixed salad greens. All were delicious! So glad to have Local Yokels just down the road!
