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

Great atmosphere and delish food! The cherry berry wrap was wonderful and the kids grilled cheese was a hit with my son.

This is a great stop less than 15 minutes away from the center of town. It’s a unique place with a great menu and things to keep the kids occupied. There is a mini grocery store with freash produce, as well and many unique jams, preserves, salsas, etc. There is ice crème if you have room after lunch.

This is a nice little place with lots of little activities for a variety of ages. We, my 10 year old son, and myself. Enjoyed shooting squash rockets - a very large sling shot. Then played ladder ball which was a new addition. He fed corn to the goats and then went down to feed the fish. Bring quarters. There... More

really enjoyed our visit here - did the wine tasting, had some lunch, and just walked around the property. Very friendly folks, solid food, and decent wine.
