The Christopher Farm & Gardens:

NATURE PRESERVE

Welcome to The Christopher Farm & Gardens, where garden design, horticulture, wildlife, and education intertwine to create a magical place.  In total the farm and gardens stretch across 500 acres along a mile of Lake Michigan shoreline in Mosel Township, Wisconsin. The development of the private 60 acres of botanical gardens are the result of owner, Jay W. Christopher's interest in horticulture, education and sharing the beauty of God's creation to help and inspire visitors.  

Years before the Farm & Garden development, the land on which The Christopher Farm & Gardens stands was home to the Hinz Horse farm. Mr. Herb Hinz raised prize winning horses on acres of lakeshore grazing land. Since then, the Farm has undergone significant transformations to become the magnificent property that is enjoyed by family, friends and visitors. 

Our Mission & Vision:

The mission of The Christopher Farm & Gardens is to bring together horticulture, landscape design, education and the arts to inspire and enlighten guests.

We are dedicated to providing a space for enjoyment, understanding, and conservation of native Wisconsin plants, trees, animals and the Lake Michigan shoreline.

The vision of The Christopher Farm & Gardens is to continually grow with a focus on education and preservation of God’s earthly creations.

We are not open to the public on a regular basis.  In June we host an annual fundraiser for Fresh Meals On Wheels Sheboygan County.  This is a ticketed event.  You can read more about the fundraiser, June-A-Palooza HERE.

You may request to visit the gardens on a scheduled group tour with a group you are a member of such as a garden club or you may join a scheduled group tour.  We select a couple days each summer season for guided tours that you may request to join.  Click HERE for the group tour contact form.
