It’s fall ya’ll! And what better way to celebrate than sampling some of the best fall treats around Walworth County. We’ve created an itinerary to take you from donuts and coffee to brews and dinner all while enjoying the beautiful fall weather and colors.
Start at Pearce’s Farm Stand in Walwort. Their fresh apple cider donuts are some of the best in the area, plus you can grab some produce, pumpkins and other goodies while the kids play outside or run through the corn maze.
After you’re stocked up on donuts, produce, and pumpkins head to Stillwater Coffee Company in Elkhorn for a coffee or a London Fog to warm up and re-caffeinate. The London Fog is Earl Grey tea, steamed milk, vanilla, and local honey. Yum!
Just a couple miles west is Apple Barn Orchard & Winery where you HAVE to stop for one of their caramel apples. They’re sweet, salty, crunchy, and slightly difficult to eat…just like a good caramel apple should be! Don’t leave without checking out their bakery case, freshly picked apples, and wines made from fruits picked right on the property.
Right about now you might be thinking an adult beverage sounds good…so our next two stops include some local brews. Duesterbeck’s Brewing Company in Elkhorn is brewing up a Muddy Duroc Brown Ale that looks mighty tasty in one of their new Oktoberfest steins.
If you want a little bit of history with your brew, head to East Troy Brewery and try their new Sewall Stout. It’s named after an East Troy legend who was the owner of the first store front in the Village of East Troy in 1841. He was also the village’s first Postmaster General. The dark stout has a malty flavor that comes from the barley, brown sugar and molasses it’s brewed with. Sounds like a great brew for a fall day!
To round out your fall adventures in Walworth County, head to the Black Sheep in Whitewater where they are featuring some fall dishes on their October/November menu, including a Dijon chicken thigh with fall vegetables, pork belly ramen, a vegan meatloaf, squash cavatappi with spiced squash and apple, and a lamb shank with herb tomato gravy. Those are some comfort dishes to warm you up on a fall evening!
If you head to any (we hope all) of these spots or find your own fall treats in Walworth County, post them on Facebook or Instagram using #VisitWalworthCounty and you might see them shared on our page.
