GREENWOOD, WI

Where can you sample a cornucopia of cheese, compete in a thirty-mile mountain-bike race, or take a trip down memory lane? If you guessed Greenwood, Wisconsin, you're right.

Greenwood has "Wisconsin" written all over it. Home to about 1,050 people, this small city is at the center of the agriculture and dairy industry. In fact, 62,000 dairy cows inhabit the area around Greenwood. That's nearly 60 times the population of the city. It is also the site of one of our manufacturing facilities, which employs approximately 200 people.

Incorporated in 1891, Greenwood originated from the combination of two names; Greenland and Land of the Big Woods. The forests near Greenwood provide an excellent opportunity for recreation of all types. In addition to snowmobiling, fishing, hiking and camping, hunting is a popular pastime in the area with nearly 25 whitetail deer per square mile. The rustic setting is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts.

If you're a history buff, visit the Banstiter Main Streets of Greenwood Museum, and travel back in time to the early 1900s. Walk along wooden sidewalks and see storefronts of Greenwood businesses as they appeared nearly 100 years ago. Also on display is a collection of toy tractors, miniature cars and early tools from Greenwood's agricultural and lumbering industry.
