Forsyth Twp. Couple Wins Farm Court Case

A Gwinn-area couple has won court permission to continue operating their small farm.

Marquette County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Solka ruled in favor of Randy and Libby Buchler today.

The couple operates Shady Grove Farm, and they were recently sued by Forsyth Township on the grounds that the township zoning ordinance prohibited farming.

The family lives off of earnings from the six-and-a-half acre farm, where they sell eggs from their chickens and wool products from their sheep.
