Growing Grapes while Protecting Lakes
Chantal Lefebvre, owner of WaterFire Vineyards, the first property outside of California to be SIP Certified, was recently interviewed by Jennifer Kiel of Michigan Farmer to talk about the history of their vineyard, and how they have used their sustainable certification to differentiate their business and demonstrate how to grow grapes while protecting the lakes.
“For my husband and I, who share core values, it’s important for us to take some ownership, or stewardship, while we're briefly here on this planet and not make conditions worse for future generations — to be focused on sustainability.”
