Farm to Table Freshness
R & B Miller Farms provides farm fresh produce to farmers’ markets in the metro Detroit and Chicagoland areas, continuing the family legacy which began in 1960, when Roger’s father transformed 50 acres of vacant property in Southwest Michigan into a highly productive fruit farm. Roger and Barb Miller continue to emphasize traditional values like hard work and fair treatment to this day. The guiding principle of “take care of the customer first” is our top priority.
Roger has worked on the farm planting, pruning, watering, picking, and selling produce practically his entire life. You might say it’s in his blood, and he is more than willing to share his enthusiasm for farming with family, friends, students and customers alike. You have a question about peaches or apples? Just ask Roger: he’ll probably know the answer, since he raises 15 varieties of peaches and 16 varieties of apples.

Roger studied horticulture at Michigan State University where he learned about soil testing, disease prevention, insect control, irrigation strategies, pollination options, pruning techniques, and a whole lot more, which he uses to run the farm efficiently and produce the best food possible.
Barb is an active partner in the marketing side of the farming business and manages the Arlington Heights location. She is also actively involved in various farmwomen groups, and helps plan the annual farmwomen symposium. Barb is a genius at incorporating the delectable produce into new recipes that grace their family table. Like so many farm wives, she is one darn good cook!
Ray is not just the market foreman in Farmington & Sterling Heights, but also a friend and a driving force for expansion. Look out for him at our Michigan locations, where he’ll be happy to help you and field any additional questions you may have.
