Pond Hill Farm’s Parm-crusted Grilled Cheese

By Anna Faller | Feb. 26, 2022

At Pond Hill Farm in Harbor Springs, playtime is the name of the game for adults and kids alike. Founded in 1995 as a family-owned egg and produce stand, the place has since blossomed into a full-blown agritourism park. Visitors can play with the “kids” — pun intended — in the livestock barn, embark on a year-round gnome-house hunt, or frolic along one of the freshly-groomed trails. And whether you’re busy being a kid or playing with some, shouldn’t snack-time follow suit? Before that mid-day nap takes hold, treat yourself to their Parmesan-Crusted Grilled Cheese. A favorite of foodies tall to small, this sandwich stacks Muenster, Havarti, and Swiss cheese between two slices of Parmesan-sprinkled sourdough. Griddled until golden-brown, this delightfully adultified classic is served alongside a slaw of farm-fresh kale, carrot, and crushed peanuts, all finished with a house-made peanut and Thai noodle sauce. For an extra dose of decadence, add caramelized onions in the winter, or estate-grown tomatoes and basil in the summer. Either way, don’t skimp on the napkins. $15. Find Pond Hill Farm at 5699 S. Lakeshore Dr., Harbor Springs. (231) 526-3276,
