Hi! We're Stephen and Liv McDaniel. We decided in March of 2019 to open a u-pick, we-pick produce stand and pumpkin patch in Caledonia, Michigan - just outside of Grand Rapids. We had four months to transform an old hay barn into a functioning farm stand. With the help of family and friends, we were able to make it happen! The land we farm has been in my (Liv) family for over 40 years. When my grandpa (Doc) passed in 2015, the Crissman family LLC gained possession of the land. My husband and I went to the family early in 2019, proposing the idea of Deep Roots, and we are thankful that they have all been so supportive of this dream of ours!
A little background on us...We grew up in Florida, but our roots are here in West Michigan. We both come from farming families: my family raised Angus cattle, and Stephen's family farms corn and soybeans in the Thumb of Michigan. Stephen has been farming since 2012. His parents, Scott and Karen, owned a farm in Estero, Florida, which is where Stephen and I met. Scott and Karen, along with my parents, Bob and Lesley, have been a huge help in bringing this vision to fruition.
We are grateful for the support and love that you all showed us in our first season! We look forward to season two! THANK YOU!
DEEP ROOTS VISION
