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. Discover programs and activities by browsing our site.

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, visitors can explore the joys of gardening and the natural world, appreciate and promote locally grown food, and develop a healthy community.

We host a variety of educational programs and classes such as:
