Local venues use local food sources

Food and community

July 12, 2014
By Neal Curran , Mining Journal

Go to Marquette's Sweetwater Cafe on a given morning, and you'll notice something different about your dining experience. The menu features the usual breakfast fare: omelets, French toast and breakfast sandwiches. Like any other restaurant, your server lists the daily specials and takes your drink order. What makes this experience different? Order the omelet and your eggs come from Cloverland Farm in West Branch Township. Add a side of bacon or sausage, and you are supporting Seeds and Spores Family Farm in Chocolay Township. The maple syrup poured over the French toast comes from the Olson Brothers Sugar Bush in Bark River. These farms are owned and operated locally. Their products stand out because they represent a food source that is equally committed to the land, the community and high product quality.
