|Camper outside Hog Island Country Store. (Julianne Crane).|
Located just 35 miles west of the Mackinac Bridge on U.S. 2, this charming roadside store features unique regional products, such as homemade jams and jellies, smoked fish, and those delicious hot pasties. Then there is an amazing variety of retro items and pig objects of every description.
|Hog Island Country Store owners Tom and Sandy Jacobs (Julianne Crane).|
About eight years ago, Sandy, a former intensive care nurse and Tom, a retired Delphi Corp. worker, left Flint in the Lower Peninsula, bought the place, and re-invented themselves.
While they sometimes feel they are working longer hours now, they still love taking care of the store and the six neat clapboard cottages that have hosted vacationing families since the 1940's.
