Art Fair

July 20, 2024

We are excited to host the Richland Art Fair for another year here at Gull Meadow Farms. This is a fundraiser for the Gull Lake Area Community Volunteers, who help local families in need by providing children with coats and snow pants in the fall, and food, toiletries, clothing and a toy in December. More than 600 people received assistance last year. Shop for beautiful handmade items and support a great cause! Entrance is FREE and there is plenty of onsite parking. Juried artists from all over Michigan will display their artwork and fine crafts for sale. From jewelry to pottery, paintings to metal work and home decor items, there will be something for everyone in every price range. If you want to enjoy activities at the farm, we will be offering a discounted admission to do so.
