Master Plan

In 2014, Uihlein-Wilson Architects of Milwaukee, and P. Allen Smith, an award winning designer, gardening and lifestyle expert, developed a Master Plan to restore and re-purpose the iconic Horseshoe Bay Farms.

The mission: to preserve the Horseshoe Bay Farms property and in the process, transform it into a vibrant learning center for agriculture, food and health. The intent is to teach people of all ages how to bring a conservation ethic to farming, gardening, cooking and eating. The focus: promoting healthy living by helping people understand their food, as it moves from the farm to the table.

Horseshoe Bay Farms & Gardens will be both an idea and a place: an idea that shapes it’s educational programs, tours, and shopping experiences; a place that provides a setting in which programs may thrive.

Our goals:

  • Preserve Our Rural Heritage
  • Rethink How We Farm & Garden
  • Change the Way We Cook & Eat
  • Educate Future Generations
  • Experience the Beauty of Horseshoe Bay
  • Contribute to Door County’s Economy
