Organic Valley: Kickapoo Country Fair
by Redaktion (comments: 0)
The Kickapoo Country Fair is unrivaled as the largest celebration of organic food and lifestyles in the midwest of the USA. This year's two-day event, taking place on Saturday and Sunday, July 24 to 25, in LaFarge, Wisconsin, will celebrate the connections between food and the many cultures and communities. Dr. Temple Grandin, recently named one of TIME Magazine's most influential people in the world and a leading national authority on humane livestock handling, will be the featured keynote speaker on Saturday.
Organic Valley, a farmer-owned cooperative of more than 1,600 organic family farmers nationwide, created the Kickapoo Country Fair seven years ago as a celebration of life in the Kickapoo River Valley. Nestled amidst the steep hills and coulees of southwestern Wisconsin's Driftless region, the Kickapoo Country Fair attracts thousands of attendees for two fun-packed days of delicious organic food, cooking demonstrations, live music, readings by renowned authors, bike and farm tours, theater, kids' activities, and dancing – all offered at an affordable price for families.
The heart of the fair is the Kickapoo Kitchen Tent, where fairgoers can participate in hands-on workshops, learn cooking techniques from chefs, meet Organic Valley farmers and sample free food all weekend long. Organic food from local farmers and restaurants will be available to satisfy foodies, from organic Jamaican jerk chicken to organic fruit smoothies and organic maple cotton candy. A tasting of local Wisconsin beers and cheeses will also take place in the Kickapoo Kitchen tent late Saturday afternoon. An all-you-can-eat Kickapoo Country Breakfast will be offered on Sunday morning.
