The Christopher Farm & Gardens:


Welcome to The Christopher Farm & Gardens, where garden design, horticulture, wildlife and education intertwine to create a magical place.  Comprised of over 500 acres along a mile of Lake Michigan shoreline shine with 60 acres of botanical gardens, gardens are the result of owner, Jay W. Christopher's interest in horticulture, education and sharing the beauty of God's creation to help inspire others.  

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.
