What a surprise. I have passed this place and never realized what an amazing find it is. We had a two year old with us and he loved it. It's would be hard to list every gem this farm offers to the public but suffice it to say, it's worth the trip. The hayride (no hay for us allergy sufferers)... More

We stopped by on a late summer weekday -- no special activities at the farm. Had great fun walking and looking. These folks understand hospitality! Active games are laid out on a flat patch (corn boards, and balls-at-target type games), the squash rocket is a blast. The trout pond was fun also.

I could see why this was rated so highly! Beautiful farm with fun things to do for everyone. Our kids enjoyed looking around the farm. There are yard games to play while you wait to be seated at Tunnel Vision brewery. The real reason we were there. Enjoyed our time.

When I first drove up I thought "cool!". Then I went inside the store. I was the only person in there and the lady there did not even acknowledge me. Maybe they don't need the business any more. We just left.

Seriously. When 75% of your meal is grown on the very grounds on which you're sitting and there's a brewery on site that uses the hops literally growing up the side of the wall and in your hair, PLUS there's a winery on site too...total foodie heaven. We had the most lovely lunch with flight of beer (both zucchini shreds... More

The first time I visit the farm many years ago, you could buy fresh produce and a few other items on the honor system: pick out what you needed, and leave payment if no one was around. There still is some fresh produce, grown where you can see it, but that has taken a backseat to tourism: look at the... More

Excellent food and wine in a pastoral setting. This place has it all. Vineyard and brewery, working farm, food sourced from the farm. Plus a farm store. The day of the visit I had their un-oaked chardonnay-perfect. My friends had a house brewed IPA and a cherry-apple cider. All excellent. The food is outstanding. All this on a deck draped... More

Great stop for anyone! Brewery, winery and cafe all on the property, along with a playground, sandbox and squash rocket. A great time for everyone.

Pond Hill Farm is a beautiful working farm with an excellent cafe. Smaller menu but everything is fantastic. Their pulled pork is a family favorite. Small kids menu but it gets the job done. The grounds are beautiful and has tons of places to discover and explore. Kids could be happy here all day. Would recommend for families with young... More

Visiting Petoskey area for the first time. We have 3 girls...2 picky ones so we were a little skeptical about trying the cafe. Kids menu is simple but GREAT! 2 had the hamburgers and one the grilled cheese...the littlest said "this is the best grilled cheese I've EVER had" 😂 all had fresh slices of watermelon and cleaned their plates....
