A food and farming festival with a focus on live culture in all its forms from dance to yogurt, from poetry to sauerkraut
There’s something brewing in the crocks, kettles and jugs of Reedsburg, Wisconsin. From sourdough bread to home-crafted beer, pickles to soy sauce, chocolate to cheese, compost to silage, the Live Culture Convergence has it all. Farmers, chefs, artists, poets and cheese makers converge with a series of classes, tastings, lectures, art events, and more.
The signature event for 2014 will again be the Farm/Art DTour, a fifty-mile self-guided drive through scenic working lands of northwest Sauk County punctuated by temporary art installations, Roadside Culture Stands, PassWords, Field notes, and Pasture Performances.I went on a Friday so I missed the musical performances and classes but the Farm/Art DTour was fantastic. Some of my favorites:
A corn maze with the maze part replaced by inspirational signs and the sound of corn stalks blowing in the wind.
This was my favorite - from the brochure* - "Too much pig, a giant straw diorama, depicts the wild invasive swine species encroaching on rural communities in southwestern and central Wisconsin. Their recent discovery threatens farmland, livestock, and the natural environment."
This is a box of very expensive candy I bought from one of the vendors for our Thanksgiving dinner. I didn't notice that it had an "enjoy by date" of November 11 so unfortunately, I had to eat it all. The one with hot chili peppers was really good.
I highly recommend this event.
*There are actually two pigs in the diorama.
