Cider Fest Set As Local Winery & Restaurant Celebrates 50 Years
Running a restaurant is a tough business, so anytime someone can make it successful for any amount of time is impressive. But one West Michigan's history goes back 50 years, and they're set to celebrate it.
Crane's began as a simple farm back in 1916 when the Crane family bought the land in Fennville. The land has stayed in the family since, and the restaurant was opened in 1972 by Bob & Lue Crane
The restaurant was a hit, and Lue's pies helped the restaurant flourish as the go-to 'pie pantry' for anyone in West Michigan.
In 2014 the Crane family added a winery, and today the Pie Pantry/Restaurant/Winery is one of the most popular tourist and wedding spots in Allegan County.
