A Day Out in the Orchard

Fall means colorful leaves crunching under foot, warm apple pies and spooky, carved pumpkins. Fortunately, whether you’re interested in one or all three of the above things, one of the best places to find them is at a local orchard.

And you’re in luck because our region has lots of great places to find that perfectly shaped pumpkin or ripe, juicy apples all while walking on leaves and, in some cases, taking a ride over some hay.

For those who aren’t sure where to begin, I put together this list for you of a few local places and some of the fun they provide.

Vala’s Pumpkin Patch

20 miles west of Omaha is Vala’s Pumpkin Patch where you can find the perfect pumpkin for carving and a whole...

Help Raise a Barn

Darby Springs Farm in Ceresco, NE is trying to raise funds to raise a barn using Barnraiser. Cute, right? Join other backers in pulling together the money needed to help this family-owned farm build a creamery barn. It’s a win-win because not only does Darby Springs Farm get their barn, but the rest of us also get to enjoy farmstead ice cream. https://www.barnraiser.us/projects/building-the-barn-at-darby-springs-farm/

Alton Brown Invades Omaha

When I watched a preview snippet of Alton’s Brown Edible Inevitable tour I was confused as to what the show would actually entail. From what I could tell, there will be food and music. There will also be comedy and maybe some stuff exploding. Or, at least, that’s what I gathered when I saw that the folks in the front row are urged to wear plastic ponchos.

“What I wanted to develop was a culinary variety show, a kind of old-style variety show where there’s a lot of different things going on all kind of centered around food,” Alton told me. “Of course, a variety show has to have live music so I do some of my food songs, which are hopefully hilarious.” He laughs and adds, “They make me laugh...

Home Is Where the Havarti Is

Wisconsin is cold. Just the name of the state conjures images of snow, ice fishing and other cold stuff. And perhaps due to this extreme temperature, the people of Wisconsin know how to be warm. Their homes are cozy and you will instantly be offered a blanket and the story of how the owner’s favorite aunt knitted it for the arrival of a grandnephew.

Wisconsinites always have a story

Stepping into the charming NorthWoods Cheese Haus in Papillion is very similar to stepping into your aunt’s home. I was almost surprised not to find a fat cat and a giant over-stuffed couch on which to sit while chatting with the owners, sisters Diana Rayment and Darleene Evitch.

The interior is composed of...
