Each autumn, the Treetops culinary team creates three seasonal menus featuring local ingredients. The team carefully pairs each course with local wines and beers. We call this the Farm 2 Fork series, and it’s an exciting celebration of the finest foods made in Michigan. Since each of the three locavore dinners is limited to 32 participants, these special events tend to sell out fast.

Here’s what we have in store for the 2019 Farm 2 Fork culinary series:
