Turkeys and potatoes and cranberries and corn and ham and pumpkin pie…what do all of these Thanksgiving favorites have in common? Michigan.
Take a look at your holiday table this season and odds are you’ll be looking at a cornucopia of Michigan-grown, Michigan-raised products.
Michigan ranks 12th in the nation in turkey production, boasts nearly 10,000 acres dedicated to growing sweet corn, is the fourth-biggest producer of pumpkins, is tops in the country for tart cherry production, and produces more apples for pies than any other state.
Yeah, you could say we’ve got a lot to be thankful for….
