Celery Farmers Win Award

The 2010 Master Farmer Award, granted by the Michigan Vegetable Council, has been awarded to the Eding Brothers' Celery Farm. This award recognizes good farming management practices as well as community and industry involvement.

The Eding brothers' farm has been in the family since the 1930s, when Henry Eding started with just 16 acres of celery. The farm was passed down to Henry's son Alvin. Alvin's grandsons, Ron and Dale, now farm 185 acres of celery near Hamilton.

You can watch a video about their operation here.

  1. Thanks for sharing that video. What a wonderful tribute to a job well done.

    I served the Eding family many, many times when my parents owned a restaurant in Hamilton. They're a great family!
