Artisanal Foods & Beverages

Farm-to-Table Food

We’re always in the mood for good food. And it’s even better when the contents on our plate are as fresh as they can be.

Since Sauk County’s way of life revolves around the land and what it provides, the best way to really get a taste of the area is to go straight to the source. Try Gavin Farms for locally raised quality beef, Tower Rock Farmsted Bakery for peak-season fruit pies, and Orange Cat Community Farm for vegetables so ripe you could eat them off the vine.

From the farm to your table: It’s that simple. And delicious.

Cheese Makers

Sauk County is rooted in Packer fandom, so it’s cheesy by nature. But you don’t have to be a Cheesehead to enjoy the region’s creamiest wheels.

Fans of all kinds flock to the county for its numerous cheese varieties from Carr Valley Cheese Company, Cedar Grove Cheese, and Market Square Cheese, among others. From original Wisconsin favorites to creative new additions, Sauk’s purveyors don’t just produce any old cheese off the block. They are the cream of the dairy crop.

Breweries, Distilleries, & Wineries

Vacation plans include: sightseeing, adventure seeking, and clinking glasses with the best of company. Luckily, Sauk County is a mecca for breweries, distilleries, and wineries all pouring the best in craft brews, artisanal spirits, and vintage wines.

The pit stops along your itinerary should definitely includeTumbled Rock Brewing Co., whose hand-crafted beers are served in front of a cozy fireplace, as well as the boutique Balanced Rock Winery, where cold-hardy grape varieties are served against the backdrop of the scenic Devil’s Lake.

Cheers to great sips and even better company.
