Next, we were in for a real treat. We went on a relatively new tour you can take that shows you all the behind-the-scenes stuff that makes this area such a great food destination. It’s called Hungry Village Tours, and if you’re a foodie, David Geen will totally make you wish you lived there.

This is a small-group, guided tour that takes you from place to place where you get to meet the people at the forefront of the food movement there. We had fascinating and in-depth conversations with everyone from coffee roasters and artisan cheese makers to chefs and organic farmers. If you’re into knowing the who, what, when, where, why and how of what I like to call real food, this is something you need to experience. After hopping in their official van, our tour included the following fascinating food stops:

Uncommon Grounds Coffee Roasters

A goat cheese farm called Evergreen Lane Creamery

Fenn Valley Vineyards

An organic blueberry farm called Pleasant Hill Farm

Lunch at Salt of the Earth, a rustic American eatery and bakery

Khnemu Studio and Fernwood Farm

Summertime Market

It was a great day and our expert guide David Geen kept us tasting, laughing and learning the entire time. If you’re looking for a totally unique and enlightening Michigan foodie experience, I highly recommend Hungry Village Tours.
