GLEXPO Bus Tour: Where farm marketers exchange ideas

The Great Lakes EXPO Farm Market Bus Tour visited six Grand Rapids, Michigan, area locations featuring a variety of attractions, crops and products.

On Dec. 4, the 132 participants packed three buses and visited Andy T’s Farm Market, Uncle John’s Cider Mill, Phillips Orchards & Cider Mill, Anderson & Girls Orchards, Hamel’s Farm Market and Robinette’s Apple Haus & Winery. Many bus tour attendees operate farm markets, and this annual event provides an opportunity to share ideas.
