WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Thousands of people will be converging this week on a Lake Geneva-area farm to view the latest in agricultural technology and to see firsthand how a family farm is operated.
Wisconsin Farm Technology Days will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, July 19 through July 21, at Snudden Farms, N764 Zenda Road. This is the first year the event has been held in Walworth County.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- On most days, “the Kettle” rewards hikers with scenic views, wildflowers, wildlife and the enjoyment of being outdoors in the glacial landscape.
