What is Fresh Forage?

At Fresh Forage restaurant, we know the modern struggle that comes with trying to eat locally and sustainably sourced foods that fit into the fast-paced lifestyle. The perennial trade-off of convenience versus health. You want to be eating local farm fresh ingredients, but whether it's the short lunch break, the small window of time between work and when you pick up your kids, or struggling to find enough hours in the day - it's hard to find something that matches your ideals.

Enter Fresh Forage.

Our ingredients are sourced from our own family farms and other local farms, as well as sustainably foraged from the deep woods throughout the state of Michigan. Our dynamic seasonal menu evolves with what is fresh and available locally. Foraged or farmed, you know that what you're eating is as close to the source as possible. It is our goal to minimize extraneous environmental impact, such as shipping and waste. By sourcing locally and minimizing waste by compost and through use of 100% compostable materials, we are providing choices that help both locally and globally.

Fast casual farm-to-table is the paradox that we hinge our mission upon - it marries the ideals of the slow food movement with the fast-paced culture that we all live in. The interior design further reflects that paradox - the space reminisces of a zen-garden that encourages slowing down and savoring the food and the moment it is in, yet the order-to-service turnaround time is rapid for those with limited time on-the-go. Any way you choose to experience Fresh Forage, our passion and commitment to real, healthy food will always be what we bring to the table.
