How does a small farm town become a major Midwest food destination? Ask Luke Zahm, chef and owner of Drifltess Cafe in Viroqua. A La Farge native, Zahm was no stranger to the local food bounty that defines Wisconsin’s Driftless Region.
“We have the second highest concentration of organic farms in the U.S.,” said Zahm.
Although he didn’t always appreciate his rural roots, Zahm and his wife have fully embraced the farm-to-table food culture since taking over Driftless Cafe in 2013.
“It’s amazing how powerful sourcing locally can be. Viroqua is paying homage to its agricultural heritage.”
