Tollgate Farm 4-H Club's Animal Program includes the opportunity for kids to take animals to the fair for showmanship competitions and to auction.  The club members participate in dairy goat, lamb and poultry projects. Raising an animal takes hard work and discipline. There are many decisions along the way about care, grooming, marketing and more. The youth raise money through the sale of animals that can help future projects and education. Email us for more information at or call us at (248)956-0029.
