About Us / Michigan Fine Herbs History: Michigan Fine Herbs, located in rural Shelbyville, Michigan, is a premier grower, packer and shipper of certified organic culinary herbs. Centrally located to quickly access markets throughout the Midwest, our customers receive the freshest herbs with the longest shelf life possible. Serving retail and wholesale accounts, our entire delivery fleet is refrigerated so the cold chain is maintained to our customer’s place of business or distribution center. In the fall of 2008 Michigan Fine Herbs partnered with Tuinstra Greenhouse, family-owned and operated by the Tuinstra family for over two generations. Vince Tuinstra, current owner and grower, has over 30 years of bedding plant experience, and is incorporating his knowledge to the growing and cultivation of organic culinary herbs. Our farm has 40 acres of land and over two acres of climate controlled growing area, including a hydroponic section that produces Living Basil and a variety of lettuces. Our out-of-season herb supply will be augmented from carefully selected sources from the U.S. and Mexico throughout the year.In September 2010, Michigan Fine Herbs moved into a larger state of the art packing facility that will ensure best practices and major growth potential well into the future. We’re proud that our constantly expanding operation will provide additional job opportunities for this region. In 2012, Michigan Fine Herbs, already Primus certified, will elevate their food safety program by becoming GFSI certified. The GFSI, or Global Food Safety Initiative, strives to establish a strict portfolio of food safety standards that would be globally recognized and respected by major food retailers and certification authorities. GFS audits are more exhaustive than traditional audits, and delve into more details on record keeping; additional detailed inspections and follow up of facilities and field operations; supplier monitoring; and product testing.Michigan Fine Herbs is proud to be partnered with HerbCo, the Pacific Northwest’s oldest and largest certified organic culinary herb farm. Founded in 1991, HerbCo currently farms 200 acres of certified organic land in Duvall, WA, and currently serves over 900 grocery stores in 9 Western states.This partnership endows Michigan Fine Herbs with an additional high quality supply of herbs, greater buying power, and additional resources to benefit our customers.
