Today’s Photo of the Day is courtesy of the Indiana Farm Bureau, who brought a busload of farmers to the Old Mission Peninsula to tour Johnson Farms, taste some wine at Chateau Chantal, and check out other agricultural locales in northern Michigan.
Pictured above is my brother, Dean Johnson, and niece, Heatherlyn Johnson Reamer, chatting with the group in the Johnson Farms barn just north of Mapleton. The group discussed the Purchase of Development Rights program, local farming practices and more.
