Salt of the Earth
A sister restaurant to Principle is the popular Salt of the Earth in Fennville. This local favorite farm to table restaurant offers chef-prepared dishes with locally-sourced, in-season ingredients in a rustic and casual setting. Order a specialty cocktail or glass of wine to sip while nibbling on their homemade, wood-fired, artisan bread and one of their delicious small and shared plates. The aged cheddar pierogies are out of this world. Then choose from their main dishes, sides, or wood-fired pizza for a hearty meal. Order one of their decadent desserts to-go to enjoy back at the inn.
