Gather the family, and take a trip to the farm.

Tourism and agriculture are among the leading industries in Wisconsin, and agriculture is one of the notable aspects of Wisconsin for visitors and residents alike. Ag tourism showcases rural lifestyles, traces the origins of food and fiber, and provides opportunities for you and your family to get in touch with the land in enlightening, entertaining, and engaging ways. It plays such an important role here in the state that September 20 is recognized as Wisconsin Agriculture Tourism Day.

Experience a taste of Wisconsin farm life at these Fox Cities stops.

Mulberry Lane Farm provides entertaining and engaging hands-on farm experiences. You can milk a cow, pet a goat, ride a pony, hop on a hayride, check out farm animals, and more at this 125-acre working farm. Founded in the 1800s, the farm's old tool shed, barn, and blacksmith shop, all filled with antiques and memorabilia, place you back in simpler times and at the heart of life in the country. Round out your stop at Mulberry Lane Farm with a picnic lunch in their old fashion play area, or purchase light lunch items on site. Visiting in fall? Pick your own pumpkin from their pumpkin patch.

Whistlers Knoll
Located in Hortonville, Whistlers Knoll is known as a vineyard with character. While a primarily event-venue for weddings, corporate events, and parties, you can plan a date night or girlfriends night out to enjoy a wine down (happy hour) or wood fired pizza night at the vineyard. Whistlers Knoll hosts occasional public wine pairing dinners and educational workshops on their beautiful country property too.

Lamers Dairy
Moooooove on over, produce. The cows want their time too. The award-winning, family-owned and operated Lamers Dairy provides a view into their milk production process from a giant 30-foot viewing window in their store. Kids and adults alike marvel at the process of milk bottling happening right before their eyes! Shop the store for classic glass-bottled milk and Wisconsin cheese, sausage, wine, food, gifts, and souvenirs. End the visit with a tasty treat – a soft-serve and hand-dipped ice cream cone.
