Economic Impact

The Holland Marsh produces an estimated $105 MILLION in farmgate value of horticultural crops. An additional $80 MILLION is added in value after harvesting before the crops leave the Holland Marsh through storing, packing and processing activities.

Strong Workforce

Farms and the businesses they anchor in the value chain both upstream and downstream are major employers in the Holland Marsh. Total agricultural employment, including seasonal as well as full-time work, in 2016 was 2,831 (up 7% from 2011).

Farmers Feed Cities

The soils of the Holland Marsh are particularly well suited to the production of root crops, such as carrots, onions, beets and parsnips. These root crops are able to be stored in climate-controlled conditions after they are harvested. This allows for a consistent, year-round supply of fresh produce.
