We are fortunate to live in an area boasting numerous small farms and producers that supply The Cookery with local products throughout our season. Many have storefronts of their own and offer more than just what we use in our own kitchen. If you’re looking for a fun road trip through the backroads of Door County, why not stop by some of our suppliers and check out their farm stands and markets?
This tour begins in Forestville, in southern Door County, and ends at the tip of the peninsula, in Gills Rock. You could break it up into small pieces, or be ambitious and spend a whole day driving up the peninsula. Either way, you won't be disappointed by the landscape and the stops along the way.
Country Ovens - 229 E Main Street, Forestville, WI
