Over the past week I visited lots of farms in the area to track down local food for the annual 4th of July picnic at Au Sable. We gathered up grass-fed beef from Rocking R Ranch in Kalkaska, free-range turkey brats and dogs from Duerksen Turkey Farm in Mancelona, organic strawberries from Providence Farm in Central Lake, and pastured ice cream from Shetler Family Dairy in Kalkaska. Between that and some wonderful sides brought by the faculty families, the students at Au Sable had a great feast.
