Resonance Center is a family owned, pasture-based, beyond organic farm overlooking beautiful Mullet Lake in Pure Northern Michigan.
The farm operates in response to the health of the soil and the needs of the community by integrating the evolving body of knowledge on sustainability and regenerative agriculture .
Soil health is defined as the continued capacity of soil to function as a vital living ecosystem that sustains plants, animals, and humans. This definition speaks to the importance of managing soils so they are sustainable for future generations. To do this, we need to remember that soil contains living organisms that when provided the basic necessities of life - food, shelter, and water - perform functions required to produce food and fiber.
Our philosophy is that healthy soil supports happy animals doing what nature intended them to do (foraging, socializing, digging, scratching, catching bugs) provide healthier meat and eggs, for our family and friends. We believe animals should live a natural life, be treated humanely and with respect.

"If we want clean water, we have to get the biology back in our soils. If we want to grow and harvest crops, we have to build soil and fertility with time, not destroy it. The only way to reach these endpoints is to improve the life in the soil."
