“A Farm for all tastes”

The Garden Cafe at Pond Hill Farm
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 7, 2012

The Pond Hill Farm has a great store, hundreds of local products, a winery and wine tasting, and The Garden Cafe. From cheeses, to jellies and hot spices, we shopped, and then had a wine tasting with lunch. Cranberry turkey sandwich, bean and cheese burrito, and chicken salad wrap are house specialities, and so was the Cherry wine and local chardonnay and rieslings. Pond Hill farm is at a turn in the road, and one needs to turn up the driveway to see it all.

Ate lunch here while visiting the farm and had a very good meal. As an added bonus, you can order from the wine tasting room and had a couple of great ciders. Nice way to spend part of an afternoon.

I live in Harbor Springs, so we visit the cafe quite often. The food is fantastic. Fresh produce, freshly prepared and always delicious. I love the chicken salad on fresh greens with their signature Sweet Raspberry Vinaigrette. Our family has had the gooey, yummy parmeson crusted grilled cheese sandwich, the turkey club and much, much more. Our waiter, Jake, was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine samples.

Other great things about Pond Hill Farm- the Squash Rocket! We spent a half hour sailing half squash pieces into the field. They break up on impact and the sheep eat them. Very fun.

Right now there is a sow with baby piglets, oh so cute! Take a hay ride, visit the livestock, see the chickens, have dinner at a farm to table night or go to the barn dance.

On of my favorite things at Pond Hill is the store. There are some yummy, yummy things in there! My favorite being the corn relish, red pepper jelly (over cream cheese with crackers) their crackers and so many things.

A great visit with friends, family and kids. Really for anyone who wants to spend some time down on the farm!

.Had lunch and everyone had something yummy. Gooey grilled cheese, berry chicken wraps/salads, burgers. Healthy unique menu. All new wine tasting and bar. Small food store with produce, flowers, baskets, drinks, etc. Come eat, taste, buy and sling some squash on the squash rocket. Great place to spend an hour or two. Check out their website for special events. Dinners dances campouts

My husband and I met the folks from this restaurant at the Harbor Springs farmers market and decided to give it a try for lunch.....we were not disappointed. The cafe is located in a farmhouse. We ate inside at small tables overlooking the farm. The menu is limited to soups, salads and sandwiches but the food was quite good. I had a parmesan crusted grilled cheese sandwich with swiss chard slaw dressed with a peanut sauce. It was delicious. My husband had the tuna salad sandwich which was also quite good not too much mayo and yet flavorful. They also offered some desserts. That particular day they were sold out of several of the items as everything is made fresh.

In addition, there is a wine tasting room and produce and small store downstairs (fresh canned jellies, jams, salsa and pepper jelly) downstairs in a small general store. We purchased 4 jars of the Hot garlic pepper jelly which is perfectly flavored.

The wait staff was informed and able to describe the various items on the menu. They were also attentive to refill our beverages.

Great place for lunch--deck also available outside but it was too cool on our visit.
