Fall Harvest in Northern Michigan; Meadowlark CSA Harvest Dinner

CSA's are such an amazing way to get our produce.  There are about 30 active farms in our region and so many varieties available.  Want a vegetable CSA? check out MLUI's list online.  Want a milk CSA? or cheese? those are available too.  Everything grows abudantly in our lovely region, grapes, hops, tomatoes, kale, carrots, squash, pumpkins, flowers- the list goes on and on. In Grand Traverse Area there are veg CSA's, milk, cheese, flower csa's, wineries, breweries...It's enough to make your stomach growl.

One of my favorite events, one that i look forward to every year is the annual Harvest Dinner at our CSA from Meadowlark Farms in Leelanau Penninsula.  John and Jenny always have fresh pressed cider and the members of their CSA and friends,  bring dishes to pass and share.  Since we all love fresh food, our dishes are usually comprised of the wonderful food that we get every week from Meadowlark.
