So glad we made reservations for this special event! The food was fabulous, wines good, barn building stylish and comfortable, and the family style seating provided a fun social setting. Couples had driven in from Detroit to the UP. A highlight of our two weeks in Harbor!

Great wine, beer, beyond friendly. Wonderful produce and products from them over the summer at local farmers markets. A new favorite for sure!

we made the trip out to Pond Hill on a recent weekend morning. Walked around the grounds, noted the pig race times, and headed to the wine bar. They have a flight menu and we sampled a few. Chatted with the wonderful young woman behind the bar and (I believe) Chad. Super nice & friendly! Got a glass of red... More

Great family-run business in Northern Michigan. New brew house is awesome. Looking forward to growlers in 2015. Great selection of farm-to-table food stuffs. Wonderful staff. Can't say enough good things about this place. Check their web site for upcoming activities.

Stopped in on way back from UP. Great staff and lots of fall activities. The restaurant was such a zoo we skipped it. The market had us parting with some money for blueberry preserves and dark sweet cherries in can. Worth a break along the drone through Michigan's tunnel of trees. No one beats michigan for fall color.

We stopped in on our drive through the Tunnel of Trees (which is very nice, but curvy enough to make my wife car sick and many impatient locals to avoid.) We didn't have our kids along, so we didn't partake of the farm activities. The store was very rustic and chock full of private label goods. The produce looked top... More

We decided to try Pond Hill Farm after hearing rave reviews from a neighboring table at the previous brewery we visited. We were not disappointed! I tried the wine flight and my husband had the beer flight. Both were great. The standout was definitely the Peacemeal Rhubarb Porter! So unexpected and delicious. The staff was super knowledgable & friendly. Can't... More

Barn available for viewing farm animals held a few goats, a pig you were warned via a sign that would bit, a couple of sheep. Smell was awful-it was a cool breezy day, so it shouldn't have been an issue. A few piglets and a hog in a pen to look at. A giant slingshot that you paid $1 to... More

We've come here 2 summers in a row now; this year introducing friends of ours to the place. The squash rocket can't be beat for entertaining the kids. This year there were even sheep in the field to shoot out to! Kids also loved feeding the animals & fish & the lovely hay-free hayride. Us adults liked picking up some... More
