Driftless

Having our work included in a publication never gets old. It is especially great when that means learning about a publication that celebrates our own backyard. Driftless is a beautiful display of food, art and adventuring in the Midwest. The current issue is a continuation of excellent coverage of the assets of an often overlooked region. Featuring beautiful imagery and great writing Driftless reminds us of the value of holding a printed publication in our hands. Get cozy next to a fire this winter with a copy. Find one near you or order one online at readdriftless.com
