Michigan’s Farm Garden

Century-old barn at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park

Michigan’s Farm Garden

Reminiscent of a 1930s family farm.

The farmhouse, barn, gardens, and animal pens are reminders of a bygone era when the land supplied the family with groceries and income, a time when every family member helped with chores. This farmhouse is a three–quarters scale model of Lena (Rader) Meijer's childhood home. Farm animals are represented by bronze sculptures throughout the Michigan Farm Garden. See the various vegetable gardens and flower beds dedicated to heirloom varieties behind the farmhouse.
