Motave Meadows


All plants are certified organic and are grown on the farm.  Please order early so I can make sure to accommodate your orders.  The tomato plants, eggplant and peppers will be grown in four inch cow pots.  Cow pots are made of cow manure and a binding agent that is usable in certified organic growing.  The benefit of using these pots is that the plant and pot can be planted directly into the ground thus preventing transplant shock to the plant.  In addition, the pot offers a small amount of fertilization to the plant after being planted.

The potting soil is our own blend of ingredients to ensure the plants are healthy and have micronutrients available to them.  Ingredients such as worm castings, feather meal and compost among other ingredients give the plants a healthy happy start to their growth.

The other vegetables and herbs will be grown in 2x3 inch cell, plastic containers that will be sold as a four cell pack.  Unfortunately, cow pots do not come in this sizing.  

All transplants will be available for pick up at the farm on Saturday, May 18, 2019 and Sunday, May 19, 2019.  The hours will be from 9 am to 5 pm.  The farm address is 5361 Pingree Rd, Howell, MI 48843.  The phone number is 734-786-1497.
