No-secrets meat

by Laura Johnson
Don’t put Ben Tirrell or his family farm in a box. “Everybody’s big on labeling things,” he said, seated at a shaded picnic table at his farm in Charlotte. He’s talking about food labels like “organic” and “grass fed.” “We’re just trying to sell who we are and make a name for ourselves.

She Ate: The Italian job

by Gabrielle Johnson
For years, I've heard about this little neighborhood Italian place in Grand Ledge. People swore by it, but I was never sufficiently tempted to make the drive to the other side of town. It takes a lot to impress me with pasta, since I tend to believe that I can make it just as good myself at home.
