In Driftless Wisconsin, we often spend much of our time talking about the beautiful landscapes that surround us, and how these landscapes lend themselves to a wonderful variety of outdoor activities throughout the year. However, outdoor adventure isn’t the only reason to spend some time in the Driftless Area, especially during the wonderful spring months. Agriculture has been a part of the culture in Driftless Wisconsin for decades, and has left an indelible mark on daily living that continues today. Even though the agricultural landscape in Wisconsin is changing drastically, it stills remains a top-ranked state in organic agriculture. In fact, Driftless Wisconsin is home to Organic Valley, the farmer-owned cooperative that pioneered organic food production. Stay with us at our Driftless Wisconsin Vacation Rental, and take the opportunity to explore the proud past and optimistic future of Driftless Area agriculture.

If you’ve never had a chance to experience the beauty of the Driftless Area in Wisconsin, then now is your perfect chance. During spring, nature once again comes to life: wildflowers emerge, wild critters scamper about, fish retur to the streams, and outdoor enthusiasts take advantage of the warmer seasons to come. The Driftless Area, a land never touched by glaciers, is a picturesque land of beautifully sculpted forested hillsides and steep bluffs, contrasted with picturesque valleys criss-crossed by cold water streams. We think one of the best ways to see the expansive beauty of the entire Driftless Area is to pack up the car and head off for a day of road touring along the rustic roads and scenic byways of Wisconsin. Stay at our Driftless Area Vacation Rental, and from here hit the roads for a day of adventure throughout the stunning and unique landscapes of Driftless Wisconsin.

Our family stayed in mid-August. We had a very relaxing visit. The house is comfortable and the property is encircled by hills, making the experience a unique getaway. We enjoyed building bonfires each night, hanging out in the nice living room and taking the surprisingly lengthy hikes that are all on the property. Mornings started with coffee on the second story porch overlooking the meadow and hills, evenings ended with zero noise except that made by nature or our family. Each night there was a canopy of bright stars that weren't diluted by light pollution. We enjoyed hiking Wildcat Mountain, canoeing down the Kickapoo, roasting smores and hanging out. My son and I tried our luck at trout fishing in a nearby stream (Tainter?). It was an enjoyable, unique experience although we didn't catch anything. We'll be back.
