Episode #889 - February 19th, 2016
Miles Lab is a name that invokes memories of the history of Elkhart, but Rick and Kelly found a place where that also means great food. It's just about time to be thinking maple syrup, and in order to have any of that first you have to tap the Maple trees. Fernwood Botanical Garden is open all year round and they have a lot of programs for kids. The Purple Porch Co-op is a great option when looking for local and organic.

    Miles Lab is a name that invokes memories of the history of Elkhart, but Rick and Kelly found a place where that also means great food. Miles Lab - The Burger Bar at Bulldog Crossing is a great find that has mouth watering food, and takes a look back at the history of Miles Laboratories. That's because the owner, Mike Miles is a descendent of the founder of the original Miles Laboratories. You can get more info at www.theMilesLab.com
