The Christopher Farm & Gardens:

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.
