Champion Hill Farm


The home base for Champion Hill is Benzie county. It is owned and operated by husband and wife, Greg Griswold and Therese Povolo. We process the honey out of our Michigan Department of Agriculture licensed facility. We manage approximately 100 hives, spread out between Benzie, Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties. Most of the Champion Hill hives are located in rural fields where the hardy star thistle plant grows wild, while others are placed with many of the organic produce growers in the Grand Traverse Bay area.
