We specialize in North American butterfly species for special event fundraisers and butterfly exhibits, butterfly houses and zoos.

We are dedicated to promoting public awareness through education and conservation efforts in our community and throughout the United States.

Michigan Native Butterfly Farm is a licensed wholesale and retail nursery and developed the Butterfly Gardens to Go collection of plants. We have a diverse product line designed to help create habitat that promotes the life cycle of butterflies ensuring that future generations will prosper. Each plant has been carefully selected to support the most common North American butterflies through each stage of development.
