Biking in the Driftless-2019

Posted by VFC Marketing Team on Wed, Jun 12, 2019 @ 02:46 PM

We love biking! Whether it’s riding to and from the Co-op, on the Coon Prairie Trail to Westby, or a mountain bike at Sidie Hollow or Kickapoo Valley Reserve – we’re here to support and fuel bikers. We are so thankful to have a great organization like Vernon Trails in our community that is committed to developing and maintaining roadways, sustainable trails, and outdoor recreational opportunities for human-powered users. They are an incredible organization and are the ones responsible for donating the Dero Bicycle Fixit Station to the Co-op last Autumn. Now you can pump up your tires or make slight adjustments to your bike when you are here to shop or grab a bite to eat. Thank you, Vernon Trails!

Local Food Fest

Posted by Shana Meshbesher on Wed, Apr 10, 2019 @ 05:05 PM

You are invited to VFC Local Food Fest – come & celebrate all things local!

This all-day event is a replacement for our much loved P6 Tailgate Party. Since we have so much more space inside our store, we’ve moved the party indoors.

We’ll have a variety of local farmers and producers around the store offering free samples of their delicious products. There will be multiple free classes throughout the day in our Co-op Community Room as well as prize drawings! Family-friendly fun for everyone!
