Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe |
Korie Beth Brown, Ph.D. , BellaOnline's California Editor

Hazel M. Freeman, BellaOnline's Senior Travel Editor
Southwest Michigan has a vibrant locovore movement picking up steam. Local grassroots efforts are helping to re-invigorate the agricultural base by supporting local family farms and agri-tourism. Restaurants, cafes, and businesses design menus around what’s in season and grown locally.
