Arts and Eats Tour in Michigan

Back road art, food and farm tours are receiving lots of attention in Michigan. The Arts and Eats Tour began as a means to raise awareness and appreciation for the region’s natural resources, rural areas, land, forests, and villages/towns. Their goal is to educate people about the benefits of purchasing locally grown foods; supporting local artists; and learning the connections between restaurants, farmers and local foods.

This is a great idea for us in Louisiana; we could lure the urban visitor to the countryside to take advantage of learning about food, fiber and art.
