The Blandford Nature Center Farm is a short walk west of the Visitor Center. Visit today and see where we produce naturally-grown food, raise educational animals, and offer one-of-a-kind programming.
Greet the goats, say “hello” to the sheep, peek into our historic barn, explore the children's garden, and play in the farm-themed nature playscape. The opportunities are endless!

With 2.5 acres of land, our farm has been growing over 200 different varieties of vegetables and educating families on local agriculture through farm-related programming since 2010. We offer Summer and Winter CSA programs each year, in addition to selling produce at the Fulton Street Farmers Market.

We are Certified Naturally Grown (CNG), MAEAP Certified and a part of Slow Food of West Michigan (SFWM).
