About Us

John Bethke grew up on the farm where these gardens for rent are growing. He is the son of a vegetable farmer,  who grew vegetables on this very same farm.  John started working in the fields when he was old enough to walk.  (He wasn’t very productive back then!)  He learned how to grow vegetables from his father.  He also has read a number of books and publications about growing vegetables. 


Johns years of experience on the farm is available to those who rent a garden to give them guided wisdom  in growing a vegetable garden in their garden for rent.


John went to college at the University of Michigan and Grand Valley State University.  He studied biology, and psychology.  He then got involved again on the family farm. In 1978 purchased the family farm from his father.  He spent much of his life growing vegetable for the Grand Haven and Muskegon Farmers Markets,  and discontinued the farmers markets focusing on the family pick your own pumpkins and the greenhouse business.   


John and Ruth grow there own vegetable garden and pick your own pumpkins at their farm   They are also developing a Corn Maize for the 2010 fall season.  More info about the farm.
