Tasty Tomato Fest celebrates end of summer

Produce grower Deep Rooted, located in Westby, WI, held their 4th Annual Tasty Tomato Festival last Saturday, with the public having the opportunity to taste over 40 varieties of tomatoes.

Tiffany Cade and Jimmy Fackert, owners of Deep Rooted, are in their 6th season of growing tomatoes, all of which are grown in bags. “The reason we do that is because when we started in 2012, the greenhouses were all gravel.” Fackert said. The tomato plants are started at the end of January, moved to the greenhouse in March, and grown up to the beginning of November.

Coon Creek Canoe races return after 25 years

On what turned out to be a picture-perfect summer day, Coon Valley, Wisconsin held the 2019 Coon Creek Canoe races last Saturday, the likes of which the town has not seen in years, twenty-five to be exact.

Almost a year to date, floods ravaged and did unsurmountable damage to Coon Valley, Chaseburg, and many other communities in the Driftless area. The aftermath laid hard times for many, but those hard times became the catalyst for Chaseburg and Coon Valley to band together and do something to help each other.

A Great British Tea Party comes to Hillsboro

Tuesday early evening saw a crowd of Hillsboro community members gather in the Veteran’s Memorial Park, to indulge in British cuisine, drinks, and fellowship. With a crowd of over 50 people attending, some of the community’s ladies dressed up in British like style, wearing sun dresses and beautiful hats.

The tea party, benefitting the St. Joseph’s Memorial Foundation, is aiding with construction of the new Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital and Clinics that continues to progress in leaps and bounds. The foundation is charged with raising funds for a capital campaign that has realized $1.831 Million of a 2-million-dollar goal.
