Starr Valley Farms
        of Ann Arbor
Community Works & Green initiatives


Participating establishments contribute organic waste for vermicomposting on Starr Valley Farm. In return they can receive either organic treatment/application of on site plants or great discounts on our products. They will also be listed and linked to on our site with the ongoing total pounds composted. Lastly, they will receive a huge feeling of satisfaction and pride in knowing they have played a part in lessoning the carbon footprint of our fare city. Please contact us for further details. 


Who we have worked with...and what they are doing

SVF would like to acknowledge Iris Waste Diversion Specialists, LLC and Founder Sarah Archer for her work not only in the greater mid-Michigan area, but with us here at Starr Valley Farms as well. Sarah's extensive background in the fields of Education, Waste Management, Sales and Marketing (to name only a few) make for an immeasurable wealth of knowledge.
