4 P.M. INTERVIEW: Alice in Dairyland

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)— Wisconsin's 70th Alice in Dairyland, Crystal Siemers-Peterman, shares Something Special from Wisconsin.
Through this special branding program you can be assured that your products are made right here in Wisconsin.
From Saxon Creamery, gift “flavor by nature” cheese including hand-crafted Butterkase, Asiago Fresca, Big Eds Gouda, and even gourmet cheese spreads from their pasture raised cows.
A bottle of wine from Northleaf Winery in Milton makes a nice gift.
This wine was made in a 166 year old wheat warehouse and comes in a convenient gift basket.
They have great accompaniments that come with the basket including jam, wine slushie mix, and a box of gourmet chocolates.
The Bird Seeder, based out of Madison, offers a bird seed of the month club, where they ship a new bird seed every month to your loved ones. You can choose from a wild bird, song bird or suet cake membership.
Pamper your friends with these decadent bath products from Maple Hill Farm. All of these products are made with sheep milk, essential oils and botanicals. Their thought is what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body.
Nothing says party quite like these retro inspired Wisconsin life decorative products by HANMade Milwaukee. Serve a unique Wisconsin mixed drink on the beverage tray or serve a variety of Wisconsin cheese on the plate too.
Silver Creek Meats is a fantastic family-owned and operated business, 3 generations strong. They have great varieties like cranberry cherry summer sausage, pepper summer sausage, and Hukki Summer Sausage.
And of course, no holiday party is complete without beautiful, and environmentally friendly, evergreen decorations. A real wreath and a real Christmas tree from our Wisconsin Christmas Tree Producers is the perfect holiday addition
Wisconsin made products can easily be identified by looking for the red something special from Wisconsin logo. It is a red circle or oval that has white and yellow lettering.
The best part of this program is that you can be assured that at least 50 percent of the packaging, production or ingredients are attributed to our state.
Viewers can go online to the Something Special from Wisconsin website to find gifts that go above and beyond everyone’s expectations.
