Wisconsin Local Flavor – Growers, Producers, and Makers of AWESOME Local Products!

Wisconsin is a definite foodie destination!

The largely dairy-based agricultural economy lends well to there being an abundance of cheeses, cheese curds, ice creams, frozen custards, and more.

Cherries, cranberries, and apples are also large crops for the state.

As are corn, soybeans, and potatoes.

Wisconsin is a leading producer of maple syrup, roughly 4th in the nation, behind Vermont, New York, and Maine.

Wisconsin is also a cultural melting pot with many nationalities coming together to share old-world foods.

German and Polish settlers, as well as Nordic peoples, such as the Swedish and Norwegian, lend all kinds of flavor to modern day Wisconsin menus and dinner tables.

Bratwurst, sausages, pasties, butter burgers, beer cheese soup, and even macaroni and cheese pizza!

Kringle, paczki, cream puffs, almond cranberry bread… All sweet treats to polish off a dining experience!

We don’t pass through the state of Wisconsin without doing at least one cheese tasting, and stopping in at least one local market to stock up on cranberry products!

And we never turn down a chance for frozen custard!
