Welcome to MSU Tollgate
The views of rolling farmland available around Tollgate are practically unknown elsewhere in present-day Oakland County, making it one of the original historical sites of Novi, Michigan. The 160 acre farmstead is currently owned by Michigan State University, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the Americana Foundation. The MSU Tollgate farm site represents a working farm with animals and retired draft horses from Greenfield Village.
MSU Tollgate provides non-formal learning opportunities for children, families, and adults, offering the unique opportunity to experience agriculture hands-on in an urban environment. Using research based curriculum and methods, Tollgate promotes food system awareness through exploring the sustainable, nutritional, and cultural aspects of agriculture.
We host a variety of educational programs and classes such as:
- Homeowner horticulture
- Summer day camps
- Educator workshops
- Youth development programs
- Small scale animal and vegetable agriculture programs
