Get ready to immerse yourself in an afternoon of fun and learning at McWilliams Heritage Farm. This family-friendly event is perfect for anyone who wants to connect with local producers and learn how to protect our beautiful lakeshores. The walking tours and demonstrations begin at 3:30pm and will last until 5:30. This event is open to anyone, and first 100 guests to register will receive a free, farm-fresh, local meal from 5:30pm - 6:30pm. Register for your free meal here.

There will be many hands-on and educational sessions/demonstrations, including seeing the modern farming and lake property owner methods used to prevent sediment and phosphorus runoff into Lake Redstone. Presentations and demonstrations will be hosted by the Lake Redstone Protection District, the McWilliams’ Heritage Farm, Producers of Lake Redstone, Juneau County Land & Water Resources, and Sauk County Land Resources & Environment.



From Highway 58 take Section 11 road Eastbound. Turn North onto McWilliams Road and follow it all the way to the homestead. There will be a turnaround in front of the pavilion, follow the volunteers’ directions to park off the gravel road or in one of the overflow areas on the fields. Map to McWilliams Farm


See our schedule below and our FAQ for the event for more details.  We hope to see you there!




Rainfall Simulator Demonstration

Come see Sauk County Watershed Coordinator Mitch McCarthy demonstrate Sauk County's Rainfall Simulator for an informative look into how different land management practices influence the health of Lake Redstone and hear what property owners can do to prevent runoff and what financial incentives there are to do so.


Soil Health Demonstration

Dr. Jamie Powell and Farmer Brian Dawgs will speak on the amazing capacity of soil and why its health is important for humans. These two will walk you through the process of decision making around soil health and how this impacts our farms and larger watershed by exploring a dugout section of earth called a Soil Pit. They will walk you through different land management practices and what landowners can do to positively impact soil health around our lakes.


Rotational Grazing Demonstration

6th Generation Farmers, Scott & Erin VanGrinsven and Grazing Expert Serge Koenig will demonstrate the pros associated with rotational grazing, a management technique designed to mimic bison moving across a landscape and produce happier healthier cows. These techniques produce more habitat for wildlife, less runoff, and more water infiltration to keep our lakes and surrounding landscape free from pollution.

Zebra Mussels

With the large number of outside visitors coming to the lake this summer, we would encourage residents to be diligent in looking for invasive species as you remove your boats and docks this year.  A number of nearby lakes have zebra mussels.  So far, we have avoided getting these in our lake.

If you suspect that you have found these or other invasives, please contact the board at
