Similar to the Milwaukee food tour last fall, this culinary adventure will feature the best in the local food industry, but the Country Tour heads out into Waukesha and Dodge counties. We’ll stop at Honey Acres in Ashippun, home to a honey museum, retail store and manufacturing plant. There, they jar and manufacture fresh, unfiltered, raw and unprocessed honey products in house. The Cedar Valley Cheese Factory in Belgium carries 300+ varieties of Wisconsin cheese. It specializes in Mozzarella, Provolone and string cheese but sells every cheese imaginable. Owners Jeff and Tracy will give us a tour of the store and factory. Our final stop will be to Held’s Meat Market where they’ve been smoking and processing meats since Adam Held started the business in 1886. Full day of food and fun.
*Space is limited to 25 travelers*

Come along with retired English teacher and Shakespeareophile Karin Sundelius to this matinee of Shakespeare’s mystical fairy tale set in the Forest of Arden where magic, mayhem and mistaken identities abound.
