Alice In Dairyland At Lambeau Field

The 70th annual Alice In Dairyland finale ended at Lambeau Field Atrium this year with a fun night of great food, great views, and good competition.  And to make clear, the Alice In Dairyland events shift counties from year to year, so it being at Lambeau Field this year was an anomaly that won’t happen … Continue reading

Grown Local Going Global

These are from an event we did right around the time of the nationwide release of the documentary (March 11th, 2017).  Lots of fun and food and of course a film.  Did a fun interview with a reporter from The Spectator (UWEC), at some TV coverage from WEAU 13 news.  What a busy but terrific … Continue reading

APC Insider Event With Chester

Fun with Chester is redundant, as he’s always a blast to hang out with.  And we did just that at the Appleton Post Crescent screening of the doc on the UW Fox Valley campus in Menasha.  Just down the hall is a really cool planetarium.  Really good turnout too, about 80 people in attendance.  What … Continue reading

Mars Cheese Castle Signing

Well these are a bit on the late side, but it has been an awesomely busy summer.  This is us having some fun at Mars Cheese Castle back in late May.  We’ll be doing another later this fall during a Packers away game weekend. Note the giant spindle of “Cheeseheads” DVD’s on sale there.  LOVE … Continue reading

The Swiss Colony Tradition

Who knew that the world famous “The Swiss Colony” magazine order (and now internet) company was from Wisconsin?  Well I did even as a child, but living in California for so long, it was always awesome to see the Swiss Colony magazine in friends houses, though they had no idea it was a Wisconsin based … Continue reading

A Hometown Reception

Things went quite well for our return to Cameron “Hometown” showing of the film.  My best count was about 140 plus in attendance.  Not bad for a small town in the Northwoods.  People really enjoyed the film while snacking on Ellsworth cheese curds, Nuseke’s amazing bacon, Cheese Brothers cheese, and more.   We’d also like … Continue reading

Ten Wonderful Wisconsin Oddities

The title says it rather clearly, these are ten shots of some of the wonderful oddities I’ve encountered in my travels around Wisconsin making this documentary (that is now finished, working on release screenings and dates for this fall).  There’s a little note below each photo to let you know a bit about it. * … Continue reading

Yummies From New London

Came across these pictures from at least two years ago when I drove through New London at dusk.  I had no idea Sara Lee and Hillshire Farms had such a big pressence in Wisconsin.  But it makes perfect sense since making great food is second nature to us.  Got a pile of brand new photos … Continue reading

The Most Useful Cow Statue EVER

 Found this in Thorp at Nualchek’s Meats, and it is franklt the most useful cow statue EVER!   * * * * * *

A Snow Covered Small Town

Almena is a small town that you’ll miss if you blink off Highway 8 in Barron County.  One reason to keep your eyes open and pull over if traveling that way is the Almena Meat Company.  Try the double smoked beef snack sticks and, if you love smoked sausages, you’ll love these even more.  I … Continue reading
