SENIORS ENJOY BEAUTIFUL WISCONSIN



Seniors Like the Village of La Farge

IMG_1695 This senior came across the La Farge, Wisconsin on a Half&Half milk carton. La Farge is the home of Organic Valley, an organic farmer-owned cooperative. My organic family and I enjoy their products very much.

Organic Valley’s headquarters are a shining example of a true “green building.” Organic Valley hosts the Kickapoo Country Fair the Kickapoo Country Fair on its grounds on the last weekend in July, a celebration that includes live music, sustainability workshops, and rural heritage exhibits.

La Farge is located along the Kickapoo River in Vernon County, Wisconsin. The residential community of Dreamtime Village is located near La Farge.

 Seniors Drawn To Wisconsin’s Secret Paradise

La Farge has a long and interesting history and a population today that runs just under 800 residents. This small picturesque farming community sits about 20 miles from the Elroy-Sparta State Bike Trail.

La Farge is a year-round recreational destination, renowned for canoeing, trout fishing, hiking, biking, snowmobiling, horseback riding, and hunting. A canoe landing and camping area are available to senior visitors in the village park.

La Farge  has been called “A Secret Paradise In southwest Wisconsin” where farmers enjoy life in the Driftless Region, known as “An Enchanted Land.”

 Seniors Discover the Kickapoo Valley Reserve

I’d be interested in visiting the Kickapoo Valley Reserve where seniors will find a high diversity of plant communities, and significant archeological and geological features, as well as an extensive system of rustic trails for equestrians, bikers, and hikers.

Meandering through the site is the scenic Kickapoo River bordered by numerous sheer cliffs and forested bluffs. The Center is huge with an 8569 acre tract of land jointly owned by the State of Wisconsin and the Ho- Chunk Nation and set aside for recreational and educational purposes.

Rising some 350 feet above the river are the Ocooch Mountains, a region of forested hills, lush valleys, and sandstone cliffs that stretch beyond the Kickapoo River watershed roughly from Spring Green on the east to Viroqua on the west.

Get up some courage and boat down the river from Rockton to LaFarge for some Wisconsin fun. Anyway you slice it, this part of Wisconsin is the “real thing” where senior visitors will find quaint and picturesque villages, dairy farms and beautiful scenic countryside. -jeb

    La Farge isn’t adjacent to the Elroy/Sparta trail – may be thinking of Wilton.

    “Reckon” should be Rockton.

    Thank you for correcting!
