Many people don't realize that Michigan is the second most agriculturally diverse state behind California. So many agricultural products thrive here, and many of Michigan's farms offer fun, hands-on activities for all ages, such as U-pick farms, educational activities and tours, farm markets and stands, dairies and creameries, farm dining, festivals and events, cider and donuts, petting farms, overnight on the farm, craft beverage tasting and more.
Our "Discover Michigan Farm Fun" Directory is a great tool to make the most of Michigan's agricultural tourism opportunities. The 130-page, full-color directory is a true Michigan product, produced and printed in Michigan featuring authentic photos from the state’s farms. Conveniently organized by regions with maps, the directory makes it easy-to-find, nearby agricultural destinations.
And, you've gotta admit, 4-year-old, Lola, on the cover is absolutely adorable! Lola and her 8-year-old brother, Thomas, are growing up with a true Michigan farm experience on their family farm, Polish Heritage Farm in Cedar. They help with chores, like gathering eggs and caring for the ducklings and learning all about raising heritage-breed pigs.
So, get yourself a copy and head to the farm for some farm fun! Copies of the directory are available at Farm Bureau Insurance offices across Michigan as well as Michigan Welcome Centers.
