Alcona County is home to an impressive amount of vegetable, fruit, dairy, as well as livestock farming; equaling over $11 million in sales annually. That’s pretty big, considering the population of the county is less than 11,000 residents.
Judy MacNeill, a registered dietitian who has spent most of her professional career in northeast Michigan and a founding board member of Inspiration Alcona, created this event with the help of Alpena chef Ben Kline. They shared some of what Alcona County has to offer in locally obtained foods and demonstrated how easy-to-prepare dishes can be created.
