Windy Hill Orchard & Cider Mill pays a deep resemblance to the kind of farm one might have visited during a fall field trip, with trees laden with ripening apples ready to be plucked. But, take a turn in the orchard and you'll encounter the piney scent of something else entirely: towering Cascade hop plants. The fresh juice that flows from the apple presses ferments for six months, emerging as mildly bubbly hard cider or accidental alcoholic applesauce. Concoctions infused with strawberries, peaches, and fragrant spices spill from bottles and taps, pairing with sugar-dusted cider donuts.
When HoneyBaked Ham was just a single shop in Michigan more than 40 years ago, it was run under the careful eye of its founder, Harry J. Hoenselaar. He handpicked every bone-in ham that he was going to sell in stores and carefully cured each in a secret marinade recipe. He then slow-smoked the ham over a custom blend of wood chips. Hoenselaar even built and patented a machine that spiral-cut the meat into almost perfectly even slices and re-creations of M.A.S.H. characters. But what really stuck with people was his glaze—a proprietary recipe that encased each ham with a sweet, crunchy finish.
Though Harry's shop has since grown into a nationally recognized brand with more than 400 stores, that attention to detail hasn’t been lost. His grandchildren now oversee the company, and they have maintained that same process of hand-selecting hams and smoking them for up to 24 hours before they’re spiral-cut and glazed. Many of the stores also have a cafe-style counter, where patrons can pick up fresh sandwiches layered with roast beef, smoked turkey breast, chicken salad, and of course, honey-glazed ham.
