Tollgate Farm

boy picking a tomatoThe Americana Foundation is located on Tollgate Farm, a 160-acre historic farmstead originally owned by the Foundation’s founders - Adolph H. and Ginger Meyer – and currently by the Americana Foundation and Michigan State University. 

In support of educational programs that address the preservation of American agriculture, hands-on learning for children, families, and adults is provided at Tollgate.  With its farm animals, fields, gardens, rolling hills, woodlands, and more, this special site offers a unique opportunity to experience agriculture on a working farm in an urban environment. 

The Foundation provides support in a variety of ways at Tollgate.  For example:

  • Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
  • Maintenance of historical buildings on-site 
  • Facility improvements
  • Youth programs (e.g., summer camps, science field trips, discovery days)
  • Master Gardener Program
  • Professional training and educational workshops
  • Community events
  • And more!
