New Day Gardens LLC

Growing fresh flavorful produce for your family's dinner table utilizing natural and organic practices.

About Scott and Jean Shingledecker


Our farm is located in Flushing, Mi. We have been growing most of our lives. Jean grew up and participated on her grandfather's farm in Homer, MI. Gardening with her father, including canning and freezing with her step-mother. Scott began growing vegetables with his father, and helping the family with the storage process.  We have continued to raise produce after our first home ownership. Combined we have many years of experience, tried and true methods, and yet we are still learning and willing to implement new ideas. 

Crop Protection

 

Our goal is to minimize environmental impact while protecting crops by deterring common garden pests while not harming our agricultural friends such as bees, birds, and butterflies.

​​

Our goal is to provide fresh produce to our community that is non-gmo, chemical free and safe for your family. We utilize natural and organic practices to minimize risk not only to families, but also to our environment. 


We are PSA (Produce Safety Alliance) certified. We are currently acquiring our MAEAP (Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program). We will also be seeking the following certifications as well, GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) and Organic.
