People who haven't checked out White Lotus Farms have been seriously missing out on "livin' the free-range lifestyle." White Lotus Farms is just that — a farm. But this isn't just any down-home agriculture, it's a farm that takes pride in all of their animals living healthy, happy, free-range lives in open fields, rather than overcrowded cages. Besides the farm to table dinners they host, catch up on your grocery shopping with their artisan cheeses like brie and chevre and small-batch breads and pastries. White Lotus Farms also offers organic, sustainable produce and continually focuses on a high standard of excellence, making sure to source locally as often as possible. Products available for sale depend on season and day, and can be viewed on their website. The Farm is open on Saturdays, 9:30am-2pm, 7217 W. Liberty Rd. Also available at the BLOOM! Garden Center in Dexter and at the Wednesday Evening Farmers Market in Kerrytown. 734-707-1284. www.whitelotusfarms.com. —DL
