Made in the Mitten: Exploring Michigan’s delicious food and agricultural history

March 25, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

Dianna Stampfler, President of Promote Michigan, will introduce audiences to Michigan’s rich foodie and agricultural history on Tuesday, April 15 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rochester Hills Public Library.

Michigan is the second-most agriculturally-diverse state in the country. From cherries and grapes to blueberries and pumpkins, peaches and apples to asparagus and celery (and many, many more), the Great Lakes State is often referred to as the “Mitten of Plenty.” Add to that a growing industry focused on locally-sourced products such as cheese, poultry, sauces, jams, breads, chocolates and so much more, and you have a feast just waiting to be devoured.

In addition to learning about the history of Michigan’s food and agriculture, everyone will be allowed to sample a few Michigan-made products.

Registration is required and open to those with a Rochester Hills Public library card. To register go to the Events Calendar at www.rhpl.org or call 248-656-2900.

The Rochester Hills Public Library is located in downtown Rochester, two blocks east of Main Street off of University Drive on Olde Towne Road. For more information, call 248-650-7124.
