Lewis Adventure Farm & Zoo
Lewis Adventure Farm & Zoo
HOW IT ALL HAPPENED Now owned by Scott and Cindy Lewis, the farm market was built in the 1970s by Scott’s grandparents (Winston and Alice Lewis) and parents (Gary and Brenda Lewis). It was closed for a few years (due to road closure and traffic rerouting) but reopened in 2003 when Cindy began selling sweet cherries at a fruit stand in the front yard! That was such a success, leading to the removal of one apple orchard to make room for a new market building. Lewis Farms as we know it today reopened in August 2004. TODAY AT THE FARM We are proud to be a fifth generation farm family operating a real working fruit farm, corn maze and petting farm in New Era, Michigan. The 700-acre farm is located in the heart of West Michigan, near the Silver Lake Sand Dunes and Lake Michigan — just north of Muskegon/Whitehall and south of Pentwater.
