  • Chocolate Bar Session on the Farm
    Wisconsin Dells
    W13668 Highway 127
    2 - 4 pm
    Ticketed Event! Come out to the farm and learn about where we make our truffles and, lesser known, single origin chocolate bars. Did you know chocolate is a fermented food? What ingredients should you look for in your chocolate? Ever eaten cacao beans? What does a cacao pod look like and how does it grow? We source our beans carefully, roast them, and turn them in to single origin bars. Each country provides different flavor profiles in the cacao beans. You will taste cacao beans, un-roasted and roasted, from different countries. Then we'll taste finished chocolate bars and test your "chocolate" meter to see if you can pick out the "good stuff.". You will learn that chocolate made with cacao beans and simple ingredients create a bar much different than the mass-produced ones you buy in stores. Space is limited so don't delay! Weather permitting, we will start with a tour of the farm, then move on to the tasting either on our farm hill with a beautiful view or in our 1901 farm building.

  • Hill & Valley Exploration Tour
    Reedsburg
    E4681 County Rd. S
    1st & 2nd weekends in October
    About Hill & Valley Exploration Tour Two autumn week­ends to explore farm tra­di­tions. Area farms open their doors to wel­come you, and expe­ri­ence farm liv­ing first hand !   As mar­kets go glob­al, the small farm and rur­al way of life with all its great food and tal­ent is under pres­sure to find new ways to mar­ket their prod­uct. Yet, the inter­est in, demand and desire for, con­scious con­sumerism, is grow­ing dra­mat­i­cal­ly. We pro­pose our farm tour coöper­a­tive ven­ture, the Hill and Val­ley Explo­ration : A Cel­e­bra­tion of Rur­al Life, to add val­ue to the con­sumer, cre­ate a bridge into rur­al life, and assist the con­sumer in mak­ing con­tact with the pro­duc­er. The addi­tion­al val­ue to the con­sumer pro­vid­ed by the Hill and Val­ley Explo­ration : A Cel­e­bra­tion of Rur­al Life will trans­late into addi­tion­al and sus­tain­able sales for the rur­al farms and busi­ness­es on our tour in par­tic­u­lar, and a larg­er mar­ket share for Wis­con­sin Agri­cul­ture in gen­er­al.
