IMG_0367How did Brek-n-Ridge Farm get it’s name?

By boat the farm is seen from the waters of Little Traverse Bay on Lake Michigan.  The old potato farm and adjoining dairy farm- yards lie between the hilly ridges of Birchwood Farms.  At the bottom, above the lake, Brek-n-Ridge Farm has become a serene pastoral working horse farm with miles of trails for riding and fields for grazing. This neighborhood has been a farm since the early 1900’s. An ancestral name from a native life, Brek-n-Ridge Farm will welcome you – and with our horses we hope to inspire you.
