Norskedalen Midsummer Festival celebrates Norwegian/Scandinavian culture

Tucked away in a breathtaking deep valley, that could arguably look like topography in Norway, is a historically rich gem of the Driftless region.

Torgerson’s Viroqua organic farm hosts Vernon County Dairy Breakfast

This year’s event was held at the Torgerson farm located a short drive outside of downtown Viroqua, Wisconsin. Over 2000 people attended this year’s event that featured kid activities, live music from local artists ‘The Lovelys’, a grilled cheese contest, and tractors on display that were part of the Bill Ripley Jr. Memorial Ride. I would be remiss not to mention the traditional breakfast of eggs, sausage, pancakes, yogurt and of course milk served to guests.
