Pioneered nearly 30 years ago by a Michigan farming family, Heffron Farms Markets dish up a bounty of naturally raised meats, organic dairy, and other wholesome edibles. Apple sausage links ($3.97 for 10) amplify morning protein levels in preparation for chicken-wing-ding ($2.75 for 16 oz.) lunches and thick-cut New York strip steak ($11.89 for 11 oz.) dinners. Toothsome dairy products such as eggs and Amish cheeses supply nutritive variety, and rainbows of individually quick-frozen fruits and vegetables fill in troublesome voids in food-pyramid ice sculptures. Pet owners can also stock up on eats for four-legged friends with ground chicken and bone dinners ($1.99), turkey gizzards ($2.69 for 16 oz.), and other chop-licking unmentionables. All prices may vary by location.
When Ed Dunneback founded his business in 1925, he didn?t have to rely on anything fancy to attract attention?just freshly harvested apples and other fruit. Today, third and fourth generations of Dunneback women carry on Ed's tradition at the same location. Not much has changed on the farm since the '20s; the property still produces the same fresh fruits it did some 80 years ago, plus cherries, pumpkins, and hops. Located inside a nearly century-old barn, the farm's bustling market slings seasonal produce, as does the bakery, where housemade donuts and pies bake to golden-brown fruition within ovens. Visitors can work up an appetite picking their own pumpkins or while navigating through the Art of Farming corn maze, complete with trivia questions about pop culture, agriculture, and history.
