Northern Michigan Food & Wine: Bacon. Is there anything more deserving of a three-hour trek? Our marketing director Rachel North made the drive to Plath’s Meat in Rogers City for a weekend fix.

“I looked down at the 1.13 pounds of bacon I had in my hand. It was valuable enough to tempt me away from the beach, a good 20 minutes drive one-way and then gingerly transport back to Suttons Bay where I’d be a hero to my hubby.”

Make a stop at Plath’s Meat with Rachel in her belly-rubbing blog.
