Join us for a free maple syrup tasting wtih Driftless Farms!

Driftless Farms is a local, family-owned business specializing in the natural production of 100% pure, gluten free, maple syrup. Not only is it a delicious addition to any dish, it's also a small taste of history!

"Henry and Lydia Walter were the first generation to settle on our farm in the heart of the beautiful Kickapoo River Valley, part of the Driftless region of Wisconsin. Henry and Lydia arrived in 1864 from Pennsylvania, and raised their five children in a cabin on the ridge above our current farm... Our family has made maple syrup on this land for many generations. It’s long been one of the signs of spring that we look forward to, and a way we remain connected to the land."
