Vintage Chophouse | Wine Bar located inside The Inn at Bay Harbor - A Renaissance Golf Resort, is helping four local families eat well this winter. The resort's newest restaurant held a fundraiser in June donating 15% of food sales to benefit Bluestem Farm's Help Others Eat Well Fund.
The monies enable Bluestem Farm to provide each family with a box filled with winter vegetables every other week for a duration of approximately three months from mid-November through mid-February.
Bluestem Farm is a year-round organic farm located outside of East Jordan offering certified organic vegetables and pasture-raised eggs and meats. They launched the Help Others Eat Well Fund in 2014 to provide low-income families in northern Michigan access to nutritious foods. Bluestem Farm works with the Health Department of Northwest Michigan to select the families in need.
"The owners of Bluestem Farm, Aaron and Mary Brower, are truly passionate about this cause and we are so proud to bring awareness to their efforts and help local families gain access to healthy foods," said Ami Klykken, director of operations for The Inn at Bay Harbor.
Vintage Chophouse | Wine Bar opened in May and delivers breathtaking waterfront views of Little Traverse Bay and embodies all the charm of a classic American steakhouse reflecting the elegance of a bygone era.
The restaurant is open daily for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and serves dinner nightly from 5:30 to 11 p.m. For more information, visit innatbayharbor.com.To learn more about Bluestem Farm and the Help Others Eat Well Fund, visit www.bluestemfarm.net.
