Criteria for the honor was a commitment to excellence in sustainable practices in the profession of farming, and community involvement.

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. Through Sunseed’s CSA program the public can become members by paying up-front for 16 weeks of veggies during three share seasons, Winter, Summer and Fall. 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.
