Hog Races - Stanton

Anderson & Girls Farm Market has a large selection of in season fruits and vegetables. Strawberries start things off in June. Then come the peaches, apples, pears and plums. The bakery and pantry offer fresh applesauce, donuts, fritters and pies. There are Amish jams, local cheeses, Michigan honey and maple syrup. Grandma Anderson's Ice Cream Parlor is a favorite stop even if you only have a few minutes. Cool refreshing flurries, malts and hand-dipped ice cream. Indulge yourself with a world famous Hudsonville ice cream cone.

racersThey have something else that sets them apart, this is one of the most unusual as it is also a remarkable petting zoo with animals rarely seen outside a major city zoo.  There are gnus, emus, lemurs, goats, turtles, songbirds, pheasants, rabbits and camels.  One of the fun attractions is the race schedule in August and September featuring pigs.  Sometimes they race the little ones and sometimes the big fat ones.  It happens on Saturday afternoons and it is great fun.
