Visitors to events, camp, tours, storytime and programs may be photographed by one of our employees, volunteers or a professional photographer. If our faculty or staff judge that education or research may benefit from the use of the photographs, Northville Community Foundation/Maybury Farm may publish, not sell, for academic purposes, or use them on our website and our social media posts.

All farm closures due to inclement weather conditions will be posted on Social Media - please check our Facebook page
prior to visiting the farm.

Please be aware that, to keep our animals and visitors safe, a new fencing system was installed. The white wire on the inside of the animal paddocks has a intermittent, low voltage current running through it to discourage the animals from destroying the fences - please interact with the animals at the black gates. Thank you!

Educational Garden

Learn about agriculture in the Maybury Farm Garden! It is used for educational tours, summer farm camp and is available for all guests who visit the farm during the growing season.  Guests can learn about a variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers hands on - touch, smell and taste the fresh bounty of a growing garden.

 

Our garden provides fresh snacks for our camp kids and serves as a garden for our guests - please stop in and pick a few

samples of what's ripe, take it with you, and perhaps inspire a young gardener at home!  And nothing goes to waste in our garden - anything not used for education purposes is enjoyed by our animals!

 

COST: Included with your $4 admission to the farm (kids under 2 are FREE)

AGE: All ages welcome!

Storytime

Wednesdays & Thursdays - Canceled until we can safely accommodate all guests

Starts at 11am

Children will have fun while learning about a unique farm topic each week through stories, songs, and sensory play. Special animal guests may also visit us at the end of Storytime. Maybury Farm develops our story times based on the Every Child Ready to Read program which is a research-based early  literacy program, from the American Library Association. The Every Child Ready to Read program encourages parents to interact with their children using the five practices of early literacy: singing, talking, reading, writing, and playing. These five practices develop the components of early literacy, including phonological awareness, vocabulary, print awareness, letter knowledge, and background knowledge, which prepare children to learn to read and write in school.

 

COST: Included with your $4 admission to the farm (kids under 2 are FREE)

AGE: All ages welcome!

Plan A Party

Maybury Farm is a wonderful setting for your child's birthday party, family get-together, corporate outing or any other group event.  

 

At the farm, we offer various group admission packages along with separate fees for use of our bonfire or covered pavilion.

 

The wagon ride, included in the admission price, is pulled by a tractor along the milled trails through the forest and fields. The wagon holds approximately 10-12 people, so larger groups need to allow time for multiple trips. 

Please see below for more details. Contact us at (248) 374-0200 or email carol@mayburyfarm.org to book your event or for more information.

 

We look forward to hosting your group this season!
