Circa. 1880

Two brothers were deeded this beautiful land after battling in the Civil War around 1865. Years later, after much hard work the once barren land is transformed into fertile farmland providing corn, oats, and cattle to the community for over a century. 



Est. 2000

The centennial farm was purchased from the families of the two brothers in 1999 by Duane Schuil.

Schuil's vision was to create a farm experience that everyone could enjoy. 

In 2000 Gabriel Farms was established.

Renovations of this historic farm soon began keeping the authenticity and history in the forefront of every decision. 

Over the years the landscape has evolved to resemble Schuil's vision of bringing the Napa Valley to Northern Michigan. 

Today Gabriel Farms & Winery offers a variety of authentic opportunities for all ages!




Today on the farm you are free to walk around pick your own raspberries, haskaps, apples, and more.

Join us in our tasting room for a refreshing glass of wine or cider, grown just behind the barn!

Want the full farm experience!? Stay in the farmhouse in one of four rooms! Or, stay in your own private apartment overlooking the vineyard. 

Did we mention the farm is the perfect place to say

"I DO!"
