Maybury Farm Northville, MI

Spring is finally here and if you are anything like me, you are eager to get outside and enjoy warmer weather and longer days. One great way to spend time outside that is both fun and educational is by visiting the Northville’s Maybury Farm.

When I started my own home garden as an adult, I suddenly had a newfound appreciation for our farms and what they offer us. Their role in our daily lives is endless. Letting children have the opportunity to see a working farm firsthand is a fun interactive way that will no doubt prove to be a great experience. That is what Maybury Farm offers.
