Hydroponic Lettuce Michigan | Lansing Commercial Photographer

In the world of farming, adaptability is key, especially in regions like Michigan, where winter can be harsh. That's where Blue Mitten Hydroponic Farm enters the picture. Located in Okemos, Michigan, this independently owned and operated farm has carved a niche for itself as a year-round hydroponic lettuce and microgreens provider in Michigan.

This session is part of my ongoing commercial photography project with the Michigan Department of Education and The 10 Cents A Meal for Michigan's Kids & Farms program. This program not only enriches the nutritional value of school meals but also supports local Michigan farmers, creating a more sustainable economy while reducing the carbon blueprint by sourcing local food.

Blue Mitten Hydroponic Farm's commitment to sustainability aligns perfectly with the goals of the 10 Cents a Meal Program. By providing year-round access to locally grown produce, this farm is helping schools and early childhood education centers offer fresh, Michigan-grown fruits and vegetables to their students, regardless of the season.

The partnership between Blue Mitten Hydroponic Farm and the 10 Cents a Meal Program is a great example of how innovation and sustainability can go hand in hand. It's a story of adaptability in the face of Michigan's unpredictable weather and a commitment to nourishing both minds and bodies year round.
