The Upjohn Farm

The Upjohn Farm

On This Date: Photo taken 12/9/2014

Think I’ll just repeat a commentary I wrote in July of 2013:

The Upjohn Farm–now labelled Zoetis–is between Kalamazoo and Richland on Gull Road. Upjohn–a Kalamazoo based pharmaceutical company–used this farm as a research facility. When Asgrow was an Upjohn product line, that division was headquartered here. (My father worked for Upjohn, but not at the farm. I did know a family that lived on the farm, from church.)

Despite several changes of hands in the past two decades, we older Kalamazoo natives seem to still think of this place by the Upjohn name.

For many years this field had cattle, who “crossed” Gull Road through a tunnel. We always thought that was neat.
