A Homestead, homegrown.

Wisconsin is home to many longstanding family-owned businesses, family trades, & traditions with one of the most well-known associations to our good, old piece of land here in the mid-west, rests on the prodigiously broad shoulders of farms.

Here in the “Dairy State”- our expansive acreage is often referred to as ‘ back country’ or ‘the back 40’. For those who don’t know, according to Wiktionary- ‘the back 40’ is a term that was coined sometime in the 1860’s during the ‘Homestead Acts.’ “The back 40” is indicative of  the ‘back side of the farm’- which refers to portions of owned acreage granted to farmers.

This lead me to the very reason in which I have found inspiration to share with you some insight on those very people, their dreams, their successes & their personal accounts.

You know the one, he comes in through the chimney while you sleep nestled warm in your bed.. something about sugar plums, two stepping in your head! Or’e the fields & through the … oh, wait. That isn’t this, or this isn’t that!
