Michigan Agriculture

Hello, I attended a program at your library that was given by someone who was showing information about the agricultural products that grow in the state of Michigan. She offered some food from Michigan companies. I took her card - but cannot locate it now - could you please tell me who that person was or the organization she was representing. I have the magazine she gave out but I wish I had saved the card. Thank you for any information you might have. Alfred Brock

Made in the Mitten: Savoring Michigan’s Rich Foodie & Agricultural History

Michigan is the second-most agriculturally-diverse state in the country. From cherries and grapes to blueberries and pumpkins, peaches and apples to asparagus and celery, the Great Lakes State is often referred to as the “Mitten of Plenty.” Add to that a growing industry focused on locally-sourced products such as cheese, poultry, sauces, jams, breads, chocolates and SO much more, and you have a feast just waiting to be devoured.  This program will not only introduce audiences to Michigan’s rich foodie and agricultural history, but will allow everyone to sample a few Michigan-made products as well!  Tuesday July 8 2014 7:00 PM
