<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I am from Dousman. It is a small town between Milwaukee and Madison. There is a support group Milwaukee Celiac-Sprue Crew. http://www.glutenfre...s/wisconsin.htm Here is the link for information on them. I have not been to any meetings as I work most week nights. I do get the quarterly newsletters. There is some helpfull local information. It is for the entire Milwaukee Metro area. If you get a chance to visit The Gluten Free Exchange in Milwaukee, I have heard it is great.

Hope that helps!

Hi Angi!

I live in Chippewa Falls, which is in the northwestern part of the state. My dad lives in Madison though, so I get to visit him and go to whole foods and my newest find, the Silly Yak bakery. I haven't tried anything from the S Y bakery yet, but it looks good!

:rolleyes: Hi;
I am from Virginia, Minnesota...and have been a celaic (diagnosed) for 7 years. My sister lives in Hudson, Wisc. and there is a good bakery across the river in BayPort called Bread Art. It is a regular bakery and has great gluten-free baked goods, although they are not baked in a gluten-free environment.

Is that Bayport MN? I'm not sure I've heard of it. I'll check it out though, it's not far from where I live. And actually my sister lives in Minneapolis so it's right on the way to visit.

Another Wisconsinite reporting in....live in Conover, which is north of Eagle River and just south of the line where Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan come together. It is a resort area and we have long winters. As far as I know there is no support here, so this message board is all I have. It is really great. I have a good health food store whose owner is a celiac and the Pick and Save has some gluten-free products. Also there is a WalMart 45 minutes away who will be having lots of gluten-free products soon. I go to the Janesville/Madison area as often as possible and will be checking our Silly Yak bakery soon. I do like Whole Foods on University Avenue in Madison....their cinnamon rainsin bread is TO DIE FOR. I own a restaurant/tavern and go out to eat occasionally here and a lot when I go to southern Wisconsin. I chose carefully and do not let the fact that I am eating gluten-free get in my way. I am a person who likes challenges in my life and so I look at this as just another one that I can conquer.

Hi Barbara, I PM'd you a while ago about things in Madison. I'm going down to visit my dad the first week in September and I can't wait! I'm bringing a cooler to stock up on all the good stuff that I can't get around here.

Hi everyone!
I'm am from Green Bay, Wisconsin. For the first time last Monday, I went to a support group. The support group meets every month rotating between Green Bay and Appleton. I attended the meeting in Green Bay, which took place at St. Mary's Hospital. It was extremely helpful! It is always reassuring to talk to other people in your same position. Everyone was able to ask any questions that they had, and most of them were answered and discussed. I will definately be attending more meetings!

Mary Mueller, Green Bay
920/435-4861, cmueller@execpc.com

Pam Rourke, DePere
920/339-7867, mrourke@new.rr.com

(Those are the leaders of the support group and contact information! They are both very helpful and nice.)

I also get a lot of information from this message board...everyone is extremely helpful and full of information!

My diet now mainly consists of Grandma Ferdon's food and Amy's TV dinners. Grandma Ferdon's is located in Hayward, Wisconsin (http://grandmaferdons.com/). I order from that website all the time, and I usually receive the package the next day! The food is delicous, and actually tastes like "real" food (haha)! Also, the local grocery stores and a store called U-Bake carries Grandma Ferdon's products, which makes things a lot eaiser! If you haven't tried Grandma Ferdon's products yet, I would reccomend it.
Well that's all for now!
~Katie :)

Grandma Ferdon's is awesome isn't it?? I live about an hour from there and have been up to see Julie a couple of times, she really helped me when I was first diagnosed. I thought I died and went to heaven the first time I had one of her cinnamon rolls (fresh out of the oven ;) )

I am going to try to get to the Madison bakery this Sunday. I called them last weekend and they said they have a "try before you buy" every Sunday. They close down Saturday and wash everything down. They then do only gluten-free on Sundays. I am about an hour away from there.

I am pretty excited to check it out. I have yet to have that feeling of "to die for" when I have tried anything gluten-free. :rolleyes:

Yes it is Bayport, Minnesota. Actually I put together a pretty good tapioca bread that has turned out fairly well..If you want I can send it to you. I got the idea from a bread I purchase at Bread Art. Their cookies are wonderful as well as the cinnamon/raisin bread. I think they bake every Tuesday so those days you are sure to get fresh.
I wish I was closer to Madison, it sounds like they have some good bakeries there.
It is great to be able to talk to others with the same thing.
Take care;
jean :)
