JERRY AND KELLY PORT’S GOAL UPON TAKING OVER OPERATIONS WAS TO CONTINUE THE TRADITION THAT HAS BEEN THE HEART OF PORT FARMS SINCE ITS INCEPTION WHILE ADVANCING THE FARM INTO A NEW ERA.
In 2002, however, as they discussed farming and food production with a classroom of local school children, they realized exactly how to fulfill this goal. Jerry and Kelly transformed Port Farms in 2003 to an outdoor education classroom and recreation area, assisting local families to understand where food comes from while having fun, enjoying the fall and winter seasons, and providing quality pumpkins, Christmas trees, and other seasonal fare.
PORT FARMS HAS GROWN IMMENSELY IN THE LAST 20 YEARS.
We added a wedding venue, corporate event venue, a beer garden, an outdoor stage for live music, and the Flower Festival bringing the next generation into the business through Casey and Stephen Port. All of this and more while still operating a working farm and not only maintaining the heritage but offering the opportunity for the region to create their own traditions during their visit.
Port farms has become so much more than its founders dreamed it could be in 1897.
We can’t wait to welcome you to our year-round seasonal activities and make you a part of the Port Farms family.
