There are no organic crown producers in MI and I am not aware of any outside of MI either.

Sorry I could not be more help.

Dear Growers and Advisors,

Could you please share your source(s) of organic asparagus crowns and which variety(ies). I am assisting the MSU Student Organic Farm to source a clean  organic asparagus crowns for this year’s planting.  Please write directly to me or share with the listserv if you like.

Thanks very much for your input.
