Now on Fall Hours

Status

We have taken up our autumn schedule : 12-5 every day but Tuesday. Open early (10am) on Saturday.

Tuesday we rest from the craziness, so appointments -aren’t- available.

Our orchard partner, Brightonwoods, is open 9-6 daily, with a zillion kinds of apples and fresh pressed sweet cider.

Tips for Visitors Traveling Along I-94

Status

Road improvement may be progress and all, but it does present a bit of a hassle. If you’re coming to see us this summer, and traveling I-94, here are some tips.

From the North. The last I knew Highway 142 was still open if southbound from Racine or Milwaukee. That will change. Get off on Highway 11 and take it east to Kansasville. Turn left on US45 and follow that south to Highway 142. Turn right and go west 3 miles to County B. We have a sign there. Turn right and go up half a mile. We’re on the left.

From the South. Get off at Highway 158 (one past 50, which is now closed). Turn left at the end of the ramp and go under the highway. Visit our friends at Tim & Tom’s Cheese. Then follow the frontage road north. Follow the signs for the Mars Cheese Castle. Visit our friends there. Then take Highway 142 west 10 miles to County B, as above.

The other option for the north bound Zax is to go up to Highway 11 and follow the directions for the South bound Zax.

As of 7/23, we are at peak product availability. But it won’t last. So come see us soon.
