Argus Farm Stop: A Year-Round Shop for Local Food
Kathy Sample and Bill Brinkerhoff co-founded Argus Farm Stop in Ann Arbor in 2014, with the goal of growing the focus on and size of local food economy. Argus Farm Stop is a new retail model designed to grow local food availability by offering a year-round, every day venue for farmers to sell their locally grown products. In August 2017, Argus opened a second location on Packard Road near Wells. The original location puts over $1 million per year back into the hands of local farms and producers, and the second store is on target to do the same. Kathy and Bill are currently working with more than 20 individuals and groups to open similar models around the U.S. Kathy and Bill are both UM MBAs. Bill has had a career in pharmaceutical industry and biotech industry, and Kathy worked in the chemical, medical gases and automotive industries. They have 3 children, and have made Argus a family adventure.
