Gays Mills Apple orchard

The city of Gays Mills in southwestern Wisconsin along with a number of area apple orchards celebrate the Gays Mills Apple Festival.  Saturday and Sunday both have scheduled events for the whole family.   This part of Wisconsin is the drift less region where it was not subjected to the glacial smoothing of the north eastern part of the state.  As a result there are picturesque hills and valleys with twisty roads and overlooks.  The ridges above Gays Mills are home to a number of apple orchards that welcome you with their offerings of apples, turnovers, cider, donuts and a sampling of dairy products from the area.

The area in central Wisconsin around Warrens hosts their annual Cranberry Festival.  Cranberries are a major agricultural product for Wisconsin and we rank number one in production with over 60% of the nation’s total output harvested here.  This festival in Warrens celebrates all things cranberry with over 1.300 artisan display booths that stretch out over three miles.  You can take tours of nearby cranberry producing bogs, explore the large arts and crafts fair or sample cranberry themed food products.
