Our Love for Food

In our first seasons, no one was talking about local food movements.  It was 1997, and that wasn’t a “thing” yet.  But, when you live in an area that produces so many local foods, it doesn’t have to be a “thing” to do it. By virtue of being in Leelanau County, we automatically carried many local products. They were better or fresher than nationally distributed products. But, a few yeas ago, we decided we needed to increase this.  

Our goal is to have our menu and beverage program hit a minimum of 25% local products.  We made this choice because of the economic impact this has for our area. The more we buy locally, the more we are supporting our neighbors (and friends!). This not only affects the owners of these farms or businesses, it gives them the ability to hire more people or pay competitive wages. It helps everyone. And, let’s face it, Leelanau Peninsula and the greater region of Northwest Michigan offers an abundance of produce, wines and locally made products.  The quality is amazing, and you can taste that when you dine with us.
