Baked, picked, brewed or churned, Wisconsin will take on even the most daunting appetite. If the Badger State is your choice for an agritourism group outing, then graze your way through farms, museums, fairs and orchards, all brimming with the finest Wisconsin fare.
Like any good Midwestern farmer, your group can expect to roll up their sleeves and experience the work behind the meal as well as enjoy the sweet and satisfying reward of a job well done. Here is a sampling of what’s available:
Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center. This museum, located in Warrens, is the tell-all educational stop for Wisconsin’s top fruit crop, the cranberry. Learn the ins and outs of the cranberry’s Wisconsin reign through storyboards, videos and exhibits.
After a tour, treat your group to the Taste Test Kitchen and Ice Cream Parlor for unique cranberry treats. The museum includes a dugout canoe once used by Native American tribes to collect the berries and light-up and slide board exhibits to illustrate the parts and harvesting of cranberries.
