“Some of best food we had all week”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

We visited Michigan in the Bellaire, Ellsworth, Charlevoix area for 10 days. Our lunch here was one of the very best. The kids (all 6 of them) loved the playground, maze, and goats. Having been here in the past I know we would have had plenty of produce to purchase if we had visited later in the summer. Service was great. Highly recommend the salads, reubens, and chili.

“Anniversary Get Away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Very accommodating. We got there after the kitchen had closed and they made us a pulled pork sandwich anyway. It was delicious.

“Great fun in the fall. Hayrides, kids activities.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

This is a Farm Cafe. It has a small seating area that you can order soup, and sandwiches. There is ice cream for dessert.

There are other activities to be had though. There is fresh fruit and veggies in season. There is cheese. There is a little nicknak room to buy souveniers.

The real draw here is Autumn. If you have never been in Northern Michigan in late September. early October, put it on your bucket list. This farm has hayrides through its orchards. Its orchards overlook the Grand Traverse Bay. The view of all the hills with the Orange, Yellow, Red Trees meeting the crystal blue of the bay is breathtaking. It is a can't miss.

Great place to grab breakfast or lunch. The donuts and baked goods are excellent. Wonderful gift shop and market too.
