We always make at least one special trip to Friske's during our annual MI vacation to buy pies for the cottage & to caryy home for friends, but this year we were disappointed in the double crust cherry & strawberry rhubarb. Either their pie crust recipe or my tastes have changed. In each case the crusts were indistinguishable from ordinary commercial pies purchased in a grocery store. At $20 each, I expect better.

We visited Michigan in the Bellaire, Ellsworth, Charlevoix area for 10 days. Our lunch here was one of the very best. The kids (all 6 of them) loved the playground, maze, and goats. Having been here in the past I know we would have had plenty of produce to purchase if we had visited later in the summer. Service was great. Highly recommend the salads, reubens, and chili.

Very accommodating. We got there after the kitchen had closed and they made us a pulled pork sandwich anyway. It was delicious.

This is a Farm Cafe. It has a small seating area that you can order soup, and sandwiches. There is ice cream for dessert.

There are other activities to be had though. There is fresh fruit and veggies in season. There is cheese. There is a little nicknak room to buy souveniers.

The real draw here is Autumn. If you have never been in Northern Michigan in late September. early October, put it on your bucket list. This farm has hayrides through its orchards. Its orchards overlook the Grand Traverse Bay. The view of all the hills with the Orange, Yellow, Red Trees meeting the crystal blue of the bay is breathtaking. It is a can't miss.
