Maybury Farm: Connecting the Community to Animals & Agriculture
Where can you and your family go to experience true farm life without leaving Northville? The answer is Maybury Farm! The Farm has been a landmark in the community for over 100 years and continues to be a wonderful destination for children and families to experience the joy and wonder of animals, agriculture, farmland and forests.
Maybury Farm is a working farm with a mission to connect the community to animals and agriculture through hands-on experiences that are both engaging and educational. Situated on 85 acres of farmland and forest, the opportunities to enjoy and learn about Michigan farming, agriculture and habitats is endless!
On the Farm we care for dozens of farm animals who provide opportunities to teach kids about the role of animals in providing food and fiber, a U-Pick farm garden full of fresh veggies, a farm-themed playground, large picnic area, and a General Store with delicious eats and gifts including Michigan-made maple syrup and honey from our Maybury Farm honeybee hives!
Maybury Farm offers educational tours that are enjoyed by thousands of children from all over Southeast Michigan each year. Our tours are designed to integrate with Michigan science standards - but don't tell that to the kids! We want them to have such fun, hands-on experiences that they don't even realize we are teaching them science!
Throughout the year, the Farm offers a variety of events and activities for people of all ages. From our Making Maple Syrup tours in March, Farm Fest in June, Farm Camp for kids ages 5-12, Great Pumpkin Festival and Corn Maze in the fall, and Santa Visits in December, there is always an exciting event to look forward to at Maybury Farm!
Maybury Farm is operated by the Northville Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Farm receives no tax dollars to operate and relies on the support and generosity of our guests, donors, and corporate sponsors to operate and provide quality educational programming and engaging events for families.
We appreciate your support of Maybury Farm. Join us this season and grow with us!
