This ain't Old McDonald's Farm. There's so much available in product and activities that you're best bet is to visit their website and peruse what they have to offer. Restaurant, winery, brewery, cafe, stuff you grow on a farm, stuff you make out of stuff you grow on a farm, pig roasts, barn dances! Yikes! So much for a simple... More

This is one of our favorite places to visit when we come up to Harbor Springs! It's especially cool for us since we don't live near a farming community. The owners have opened up their land to visitors and they are easy going about letting everyone wander around. There are tons of animals to see, berries to pick, trails to... More

They had a booth at Farmers Market in Harbor so thought we'd check it out. They have a beautiful piece of property with average wines and fabulous organic food. We had lunch - wow! It was very tasty

We went here for lunch and found a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours. This working farm was a highlight of our time in Harbor Springs. What's not to love about seeing sheep, cows, pigs and goats? Shoot veggies with the squash shooter was so much fun. I wish we'd had time to take the tractor ride around... More

This is a fun spot, especially for families. A decent restaurant, a neat country-type store, and some unique outdoor activities, including a giant catapult for launching squash plants that the kids will really like.

The farm is set back and beautifully landscaped. The setting was perfect. The kids (11) loved the trout pond, feeding the animals, and slinging squash in the squash rocket. I most admit the slingshot was great fun. Our lunch was the best we have had on the trip with organic produce direct from the farm. We love farm to table/fork... More

Stopped in to see if it was worth bringing our toddler by later. Our trip was short and we didn't make it back but should have. Animals for feeding/petting, a brewery and winery tasting, cafe, and farmers market type store. Lots to see and do. Seems to have a lot of special events on weekends such as hay rides. Make... More

While on vacation, I ventured to Pond Hill with our two six year old daughters. We enjoyed the squash launcher, petting pigs, goats, and a chicken, and a snack a from the store. What I appreciated was that the petting zoo wasn't there to be a cash cow. It was clear from the quality and variety of produce, that Pond... More

Pond Hill is always on our list to visit while in Harbor Springs. Pick up some hanging baskets, or flower pots, some hand canned jams or jellies, ice cream cone, or have lunch or dinner. Great place for all ages. Attracts a lot of little ones who love to visit the animals, go on a hay ride. It's about 10... More
