The goal of the Driftless Food Guide is to promote great local farmers, producers, restaurants, and other food-related businesses that help make our region so amazing – and tasty!

Your business doesn’t have to be food-related to join in on the fun! You can show your support of local producers through an ad in the DFG as well!

Have you seen Inspire(d) Magazine around the Driftless? We’ve been printing our positive news magazine for going on 12 years! And in 2018, we launched the Driftless Food Guide! We – Aryn, Benji, and Roxie – love to explore local farms, try out new restaurants, and support fellow local entrepreneurs and producers in our region. We thought you might too, so we put together this handy, annual guide. Want to hear more about our story?
