Or that it was once considered “Rock n’Roll Central”, playing host to major bands like The Doobie Brothers, The Beach Boys, Bob Seger, Ted Nugent, Willie Nelson, Def Leppard, and Aerosmith, to name a few? It’s hard to believe one property could have so much history, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.Built in 1918 by Albert Loeb, the acting President of Sears, Roebuck, and Co. as a model dairy farm, Loeb Farms was modeled after the stone barns and castles found in Normandy, France. At its peak the farm was the largest employer in Charlevoix County, with over 90 people on its payroll. It had over 200 head of prize-winning Holstein-Friesian and 13 pair of Belgian draft horses. It even had its own baseball team- the Sodbusters. You’ll see amazing photos of the construction, farm years, and restoration during a guided or self-guided tour. castlefarms.com
