Welcome to Door County!
For the first time since 1983, Door County was selected to host the state-wide finals. We are excited to use this opportunity to highlight the wonders of agriculture and tourism in our section of the state.
Leading up to the finals, Alice in Dairyland will visit the county and showcase the diversity of Door County agriculture. Among those that will benefit from the program will include the family-owned farms, food processors, and agriculture related businesses that generate thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity.
Wisconsin’s most geographically unique county features 300 miles of majestic Lake Michigan shoreline, towering limestone bluffs, and 11 historic lighthouses nestled in one of the most intense concentrations one will find across the United States.
Door County has an impressive agricultural array that’s as diverse as Door County’s landscape itself. The county’s agricultural enterprises showcase abundant apple and cherry orchards, grand garlic patches, luscious lavender fields, magnificent maple sugar camps, succulent strawberry patches, and a growing viticulture and wine sector.
The Bay of Green Bay and Lake Michigan waters also anchor a thriving commercial fishing industry that feeds Door County’s world-renowned fish boils, while Sturgeon Bay’s ship-building enterprise builds the vessels to transport these goods throughout the Great Lakes region and beyond.
Wisconsin’s naturally air-conditioned peninsula is a valued vacation destination for over two million people each year and that makes it a unique intersection where production agriculture and foodies meet for many tasty food treats.
