Long Haul Farm is an organic flower farm in Chelsea, MI dedicated to sustainably growing plants, family, community, and soil biology for generations, the long haul!
-------- History --------
Growing up, I used to come here to visit my great-aunt & uncle's horse ranch. My great uncle grew up visiting his great uncle who was one of the first in our family on this land. They were animal and nature lovers, and in their retirement, sold 130 acres to The Nature Conservancy, all of which is now protected as a county nature preserve. Unfortunately 11 years ago, my great-uncle and aunt had passed and we had to sell the family land.
By an amazing serendipitous luck, as we were looking for a farm homestead to move to, we reconnected with the owners of the land and they were just deciding to sell it. So my family was able to buy back the family land and continue the legacy.
-------- Onwards ----
Kathryn and I are restarting our cut-flower farm, and hoping to develop a permaculture inspired orchard and keep chickens and pigs. We love living here surrounded by extensive state and county parks and recreation land, while still being close enough to Chelsea and Ann Arbor for all that they provide.
Our aim is to create a safe, inclusive, and enjoyable atmosphere for our visitors. We hope to provide a refuge in nature and perhaps even some education of flowers or wildlife.
Join us in carrying on the legacy of family land stewardship and love for natural spaces!

The Cobin was delightful and as cozy as it looks in photos. We loved the kitchen to have space to cook, it was well supplied. Our hosts generously gave us some granola and breakfast items too.
The highlight was definitely the sauna. It was so cleansing and great conversation with Miguel. Thanks!
Beautiful place! Christine was very welcoming and we loved hearing about her vision for the space. She certainly has lots in the works. So many magical spaces around the property, if only we had more time to explore.
