The Lake Michigan region is beautiful. Its beauty lies not only in the scenery, but also in the local harvests for the freshest farm-to-table offerings.
Orchards are filled with cherries, apples, peaches, pears, and other luscious fruits. Fields are abundant with corn, asparagus, squash, and greens. Many local restaurants count on regional farmers as a source for seasonal ingredients. Some restaurants change their meals to reflect the abundance of the seasons, offering an ever-changing menu using local produce.
