Our Story

Parkside Farm is a reservation and by appointment only farm in Byron Center, MI founded by Nicole Zaagman in 2021. Parkside Farm sits on 8 acres and was named for its peaceful, "park-like" setting filled with trees and natural beauty. In the day you can watch clouds roll by, see amazing sunsets and star gaze at night. Our farm is 20 minutes south of downtown Grand Rapids, not far from the Grand Rapids International Airport, many restaurants, various entertainment options and shopping venues.


Parkside Farm offers a unique and curated menu of services including a barn theater for small family gatherings and events, relaxing overnight RV and farmhouse Airbnb  stays, photography sessions, hands-on pygmy goat farm educational experiences and mobile pygmy goat visits for special events such as school visits, assisted living enrichment, festivals and birthday parties. Our prayer is for the Lord to use Parkside Farm as a place of restoration and blessing and to spread joy with others.
