Local Food Producer Spotlight
Here in Michigan’s great southwest we are lucky to be in a land abundant with farms, among these is Granor Farm, a certified organic produce and grain operation. What makes Granor stand out is not only their commitment to providing fresh, organic, local produce, but their robust outreach model that invites the community to come have memorable experiences on the farm.
