Discover Wisconsin, and its hosts, Mariah Haberman and Jake Zimmermann, are showcasing a handful of local businesses in an upcoming program. The episode, called “Made in Door County,” premieres April 9 at 6:30 pm on WFRV TV 5. It may also be streamed online at discoverwisconsin.com after April 9.
“Part of what makes Door County so magical is its homespun essence. We’ve featured the peninsula on Discover Wisconsin in several episodes but for this one, our crew really wanted to dig a bit deeper to hear from the families and businesses that make Door County the special place it is,” said Haberman. “Whether it’s wine, pie or old-fashioned candies, expect lots of mouthwatering, cherry-flavored scenes in this show.”
Featured in this episode of Discover Wisconsin is Seaquist Orchards Farm Market in Sister Bay. There, Haberman learns how to make a cherry pie with members of the Seaquist family. In Forestville, Zimmermann discovers Country Ovens, the producer of the “The Original Door County Dried Cherry.” Sturgeon Bay’s Door County Candy, an old-fashioned candy store and ice-cream parlor, is highlighted as is Door Peninsula Winery in Carlsville.
“Made in Door County” will reach Discover Wisconsin’s broadcast network of 500,000 viewers across the upper Great Lakes region. To learn more, visit discoverwisconsin.com.
