Stopped here while driving tunnel of the trees. What a gem! Food was an incredible mix of classic and modern fare, there was a great selection of beer and drinks (I drank my weight in hot chocolate), and the atmosphere was warm and charming. We tried the hot garlic pepper jam and bought some to take home! Can't wait to... More

Husband & I stopped by while on a late fall week long vacation in the Harbor Springs area. We found Pond Hill Farm to be folksy, scenic & inviting, in a rough hewn way. The servers were friendly. What Food we had was good but seemed expensive for the portion. I had wine which was decent but a small pour... More

Stopped here while on the Tunnel of Trees and had a great visit. They have a cute shop with many fruit preserves, pickles, soup mixes. Upstairs we enjoyed the wine and beer tasting, as well as an appetizer from the cafe. We had a wonderful visit and the two women tending bar were super friendly and engaging. It's a great... More

Lots to do for the entire family! Enjoy the farm-to-table menu choices from which it's hard to make just one choice! Choose a wine or beer from their label to accompany it (better yet, choose a flight of either to sample several). Explore the farm, toss pumpkins, feed the animals, warm up beside a fire. We plan on making a... More

We happened upon this place with pumpkins galore catching our attention. We stopped and saw how beautiful they made the pumpkins look! The little store is filled with yummy products and there are sweet piggies asking to be scratched nearby. They really cater to kids so nicely and offer some meals using locally grown food. Beautifully fun!

Having hard time reviewing this place after reading so many great reviews. Our experience at the farm wasn't a bad one but wouldn't recommend it to a friend. There are things for the kids and nice looking vegetable gardens. Upstairs in the barn you can get a lite meal in the cafe. But would recommend eating before you visit or... More

We went here as we were driving the Tunnel of trees. It was an interesting place with a great story. It started as a small veggie stand at the road and blossomed into a great place to spend an autum afternoon.
