The Roth House Bed & Breakfast in Soldier's Grove, WI

The Roth House Bed & Breakfast in Soldier's Grove, WI

When visiting the western part of our state where you will find some of the largest Amish communities, it may take more than one day to visit and explore the area because of the vast amount of Amish stores and businesses. In western Wisconsin, specifically Monroe, Vernon, and Crawford County, there seems to be Amish just a mile or two away no matter where you are. 

On our last trip to that part of the state, we had the opportunity to stay at The Roth House Bed & Breakfast in Soldier's Grove, WI right next to the Kickapoo River. Let me tell you, it was quite a lovely experience. The town of Soldier's Grove is charming and neighbors many Amish communities and The Roth House Bed & Breakfast offers a unique experience with rooms to relax and gather when traveling with friends. The breakfast, made with as many local ingredients as possible, was fantastic.

Double J-R Bison Ranch Viroqua, WI

One of the vendors we discovered at the Viroqua Farmer's Market was Double J-R Bison Ranch. 

I am very adamant when it comes to the meat I purchase for my family. It has to be grass fed, grain fee, antibiotic and hormone free. Unfortunately, this kind of meat is difficult to find in the area I live. And if I can find it, it's usually $10 or more per lb. 

I was so disappointed for not bringing a large cooler with when we were in this area. The prices on bison from Double J-R Bison Ranch are fantastic. So fantastic that we plan on going back to the area this month to purchase their bison in bulk. 

If you are interested in purchasing bison from Double J-R Bison Ranch, the contact information is below:

Double J-R Bison Ranch
S4908 Nottingham Rd.
Viroqua, WI 


They do have frozen bison ready for purchase at the Viroqua Farmer's Market. They also had Buffalo Jerky and Buffalo Sticks among other items. 

Note: Double J-R Bison Ranch does not ship and they are not Amish.
