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 600 acres along 1.25 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline in Mosel Township, Wisconsin. The development of the private 60 acres of botanical gardens is the result of owner, Jay W. Christopher's interest in horticulture, education, and the mission to share God's beauty with visitors.

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

We are not open to the public on a regular basis
