Every spring, and sometimes in the fall, my friend Sandy and I go camping in Michigan’s Leelanau Peninsula. We love the outdoors and we love to cook so we always prepare meals over a fire, and take plenty of food during our day trips to have picnic lunches.
Our first day usually includes a trip to Good Harbor Winery to stock up on wine and Stone House Bread in Leland for our bread supply. On the way to these destinations on M-22 we passed Good Harbor Farm, which just opened last year.
It was the sign that caught my eye. Goat cheese! That’s one thing Sandy and I love to spread on Stone House Bread, grilled over a fire.
Good Harbor Farm grows organic produce and also produces goat cheese, honey, maple syrup, eggs, meat, essential oils, body soaps, and vinegars. When we got there early in the afternoon, only four containers of goat cheese were left!
It’s listed as an Environmentally Verified farm through the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP), which helps farms voluntarily prevent or minimize agricultural pollution risks.
Usually, we hit our own Holland Farmers Market prior to our camping trip to stock up on fresh produce but next time we plan to get many of our supplies at Good Harbor Farm. If you’re on M-22 in Leelanau County, stop by to check them out! Visit their Facebook page to see what’s in season.
