Becker started Sunseed with his wife Trilby three years ago, and was voted Best Local Farm in Current Magazine’s 2012 Best of Washtenaw County.

Each week members pick up a share of the crop that is enough to feed the whole family with varieties of over seventy different vegetables according to what’s in season.
