       Situated in the scenic Kickapoo valley, and having an abundance of
pure water and a groat supply of grasses, this entire community makes an
excellent field for the dairy industry. Consequently, dairying headed by
cheese production assumes first place in this Vernon County town. Hard
wood lumber, swine and tobacco also are shipped from La Farge. La Farge
has three rural routes.
