(map) Labor Day weekend is typically a time for grilling burgers. Why not try something different (and delicious) like the Hudson brothers’ Chop’t Steak? Hand-formed beef patties wrapped in bacon and rolled in black pepper, they’ve got a decadent flavor, rich and smoky. Nirvana for meat-lovers. Back in the day, Charlie and David’s dad

(map) If you’re a fan of the Eat Local movement, it doesn’t get much more local – or fresh – than produce sold twenty feet from where it’s grown. This new farm stand just opened last month near Hudson Bend. They aim to be out
