“Your local farm for food,flowers, & family fun!”

Pond Hill Farm is a family owned and operated farm located 5 miles north of downtown Harbor Springs, Michigan on scenic M119. The farm is open to the public and is a great place to bring the family for a fun filled farm experience.  The kids will love feeding the cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, and goose up in our Livestock Barn. They will also fall in love with the Squash Rocket which is open from spring to late fall. It's a giant slingshot to sling squash out into the fields.  The Trout Pond is a must see starting in the Spring.The whole family will enjoy feeding the fish....watch out you will get splashed! The farm market is filled with our very own pesticide and herbicide free produce, our very own hormone and antibiotic free organically raised beef, pork, and lamb, Sharon's Old Fashioned Canned Goods (canned onsite), organic dairy products, Pond Hill Natural Handmade Soaps, and a wide variety of other natural & organic items. Our canned goods can be shipped year round. Check out our varieties on our product page and email your order to farm@pondhill.com    (The pepper jelly is addictive!) Up in our event barn you will find our The Garden Cafe at Pond Hill. The cafe is run by head chef Scott Schornak. He uses our seasonal fresh produce, herbs, and meats to create amazing lunches. The menu includes appetizers, Black Angus Burgers, pulled pork burritos, homemade soups, hot dogs, veggie wraps, fresh salads, and more! Our most popular item is our Parmesan Crusted Grilled Cheese with Tomato and Basil and a side of Kale Slaw in our Spicy Peanut Sauce. The Cafe is closed for lunch service for the season. We will re-open in the spring of 2014. Catering from the Garden Cafe is available year round. Chef Scott also does in home catering using our wonderful ingredients. Visit our special events page to view our catering menu.  Upstairs you will also find the tasting room of Harbor Springs Vineyards & Winery at Pond Hill Farm. This tasting room has been built using wood harvested from right here on the farm and looks out at the farms terraced vineyard. Enjoy wine tasting or a glass of wine with your lunch. Wines include Regatta Red, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Cherry Wine, Sumac Wine, and a Cherry Finale Dessert Wine. Also try our Tunnel Vision Hard Cider.

If you're staying in the area, or even passing through on M-119, Pond Hill Farm is absolutely worth a visit. Have lunch in their restaurant, do a wine tasting, or take the kiddos to see the farm animals (I have a particular affection for the goats in the barn). When it's warm out, Pond Hill is a great place to stroll around and enjoy the perfect Northern Michigan weather. Make sure to walk up the hill in the vineyard, there's a great view up there!

This family farm is a must stop if you're driving up M-119! It is in the middle of a beautiful area and has some amazing views! Additionally, there are some great activities for a family and cute farm animals to see. They sell tons of farm produce too and the food in the cafe is delicious! Overall I highly recommend!

Pond Hill Farm is a must do when visiting the area. During the fall they have fun harvest activities for kids and families and beautiful views of the the fall foliage surrounding them. The restaurant serves farm fresh food and is delicious and reasonably priced. They also have a little market that sells ice cream and where you can buy healthy, organic and gluten free treats, much of it is made from their farm and other local area businesses.

Pond Hill Farm & Garden Cafe is kind of your one-stop-shop for pretty much everything awesome in this world… For starters, you can feed all sorts of animals in the year-round livestock barn and then feed yourself in the farm market or cafe. Then, during the summer months, you can also satisfy your sweet tooth with some Velvet Ice Cream at their ice cream parlor.
