Piggott’s Farm Market & Bakery is located in the beautiful agricultural countryside of Benton Harbor, MI. The market sits on the edge of L.H. Piggott & Girls which was began by Laurel and Francis Piggott in 1949. Laurel and Francis had six daughters who worked on the farm as children. In the early years they grew apricots, strawberries, and peaches. As time went on they began to grow more vegetables. The farm is now owned and operated by Laurel and Francis daughter Laurie and her husband George McManus III. Today, there are many crops grown on the farm including, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, summer squash, watermelons, cantaloupes, peppers, gladiolus, hard squash, pumpkins, onions, and much more.
In 1996, seeing a need for an outlet for excess produce, George and Laurie set up a trailer along Napier Avenue to sell tomatoes and had their four children manage the trailer. This endeavor was very successful and in 2003 they built the market that stands today.
The market has grown over the years andin 2012 a bakery was added where we make delcious pies, cookies, and donuts! Over the years we have expanded our produce offering to include a wide variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables. We have also added additional Michigan made products including jams, honey, maple syrup, and other preserves.
We like to think Grandpa and Grandma Piggott would be very proud of what has become of the 40 acre farm they started over 60 years ago. We invite you to come visit Piggott’s Farm Market & Bakery and make trips to our family farm a new tradition for your family.
