High Acres Fruit Farm had its beginnings in 1942 when Glenn and Catherine Meachum purchased 80 acres of land in Hartford Township in southwestern Van Buren County to raise peaches and cherries. Since then the Meachum family has expanded and diversified the farm.
High Acres Fruit Farm now farms 2500 acres of several different fruits, vegetables, and row crops including apples, plums, cherries, nectarines, strawberries, grapes, peppers, tomatoes, corn, soybeans, and wheat.
Along with operating the farm, we own and operate Meachum Farms Trucking and Paw Paw River Produce -- a cold storage and warehousing facility. In 2005, the farm launched the Spencer brand tomato label. The Spencer brand is now recognized throughout the Midwest and East coast as a premium product.
In 2006, the family farming operation was awarded the Michigan Farm Bureau Farm Stewardship Award, and in 2007 High Acres Fruit Farm was presented the Master Farmer Award from the Michigan Vegetable Council.
We are proud to be an American farm family that works to put wholesome food on the tables of our nation and world.
