Units: 1     Capacity: 8


Gill's Pier Ranch is nestled in the idyllic wine country of northern Michigan. We raise Tibetan yak for breedstock, fiber and meat.

In addition to our yaks, we have chickens, chukar and quail that we raise for eggs and meat too.

Stop by for a farm tour, take pictures of our amazing and unique animals or purchase local produce or our exceptionally tasty meats in the farm market.

Set in the back 50 acres and overlooking our ranch is our farm stay – Houdek Creek Lodge that will open in the late summer/fall of 2017. This new 3 bedroom 2 full bath cabin will sleep up to 8 people. With a full kitchen, you can either eat in our explore the amazing local cuisine that has made this area a hotspot for foodies. We can even arrange for a dinner focused on our ranch’s yak and other produce.

The focus of our farm stay is two-fold: 1. For those individuals and groups that want to learn more about our ranch in a hands-on manner to the extent that they feel comfortable and 2. Want to a unique sporting adventure such as custom sporting clays, guided upland preserve hunting or dog training, waterfowl or turkey hunting and fishing on Lake Michigan while they stay in the area.
