As each new day dawns in rural America, a way of life lived by some, but unknown to most of us, begins. It surrounds us here in beautiful Fond du Lac and the Lake Winnebago Region, the business of Agriculture— the backbone of our country. The Fond du Lac area’s agritourism is all about connecting with Wisconsin’s heritage and making it your own. Local farms are buzzing with activities to keep you busy and entertained. Whether picking a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, such as strawberries, raspberries, pumpkins, apples, and squash; dining at the farm and enjoying

a farm-to-table experience; or even taking part in the daily routine of chores tending to the farm, there’s always something to see, do, and eat from locally grown Fond du Lac. Agritourism is a way of sharing the farm story with the community by offering the opportunity to engage people in the discussion of local food production and the importance of family farms in the region. On some farms that welcome visitors, the goal is less about providing a unique vacation and more about fostering a deeper understanding of the farming process through education and hands-on experiences. Many have opted to connect with nature and experience life in the country on their summer vacation or while taking a trip to get away from it all. In most cases, such trips allow individuals, couples, and families to experience country living up close and personal.


The best part? It’s easy to experience all of this and much more right here in beautiful Fond du Lac and the Lake Winnebago Region. We welcome you and your family to experience a fresh, delightfully different way of living, working, and playing. You’ll have the chance to meet genuine people, taste farm-fresh flavors, pick your own fruits, pet farm animals, and much more—making your trip here an adventure everyone will love and remember.
