This unique culinary series at Treetops Resort is in its 3rd season and features locally grown and prepared dishes and the hands that brought them from seed to the table. Through this series, we hope to spread awareness about the benefits of locally grown food. A different farmer is featured at each event and talks about their farm, operations, etc. We also work closely with the Gaylord Farmer’s Market and other Northern Michigan growers to put this event on. You’ll meet for a shuttle ride that will take you out to the Wilderness Cabin on our Project Nature property. This beautiful spot has a deck overlooking a spring-fed pond.
