About Us

Fantail Farm is a 120 acre farm in Joyfield Township, Benzie County Michigan.  It has been in the Zenker family since 1966.  There was a small Cherry and Plum orchard on the farm, as well as a sawmill- owned and operated by Fred (Fritz) Zenker.  A section of managed forest exists yet today.    Cherries & Plums changed over to grain crops and eventually Christmas Trees.  In 1999, the farm was passed down to the Zenker grandchildren.   In 2003 the sawmill began it’s conversion into a horse barn, the Christmas tree field (long since harvested) into a horse pasture.  Fantail Farm was established in 2015.
