Brian Bates and Anne Morningstar own and operate Bear Creek Organic Farm in Petoskey, Michigan – a small farm that specializes in raw honey, organic greens, microgreens, potted herbs, and garlic. Brian is passionate about small farm finances, making a living doing what you love, and savvy marketing. Firm believers in transparency through the value chain, Anne & Brian have developed a philosophy called “Full-Transparency Farming” where the farm is an open book for customers, wholesalers, and fellow farmers. With no secrets, a lot of ideas, and some serious elbow-grease, Bear Creek has gone from $0 to $120k on 1.5 acres in less than two years.
Anne Morningstar owns and operates Bear Creek Organic Farm with her husband, Brian Bates in Petoskey, Michigan. A Full-Time Instructor of Design at North Central Michigan College, Anne is the marketing and design mastermind at Bear Creek Organic Farm. With a camera always by her side, she has built a significant social media presence and online following for the farm, translating “likes” and “shares” into real sales and customers. A believer in the power of storytelling, Anne helps other farmers and business owners find their voice and share their stories.
This event is free and open to the public.
