Shannon Brines started Brines Farm in 2004.  Brines Farm sells authentically grown fruits and vegetables via farmers markets and CSA shares.  Brines Farm is a family farm located on 2 sites in northern Webster Township within the Dexter community schools district: one site is a 10 acre site with a Dexter mailing address and the second site is an 80 acre site around the corner with a Whitmore Lake mailing address.  Brines Farm uses a wide array of ecological-friendly, sustainable agriculture, and permaculture techniques.  Brines Farm was an area pioneer in the use of hoophouses.  A hoophouse or high tunnel is generally a passive solar heated structure covered with plastic that can extend the growing season.  Brines Farm has plants in the ground inside hoophouses year-round although weather patterns can limit what is available to be harvested at times.  Brines Farm offers a variety of internship opportunities as well as periodic open houses and volunteer days for the public.

Brines Farm is currently a regular at Ann Arbor Farmers Market and Cobblestone Farm Market.  Often Shannon Brines' father, Bill Brines, works the farmers market stall.
