During our anniversary getaway to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore late last August (which was wonderful and can be seen here), we visited Hauser's Superior View Farm, a family nursery and orchard that's been in Bayfield, WI for over a century.
The area surrounding Bayfield is rich with apple orchards & berry farms.
Hauser's barn was mail ordered from Sears Roebuck, hauled up the hill from Bayfield by horse drawn wagons, and built in the early 1920's. The barn originally cost $896.00.
Hauser's specializes in northern field-grown perennials.
Outside, the barn is surrounded by plants & flowers.
Inside you can sample & purchase different varieties of apples, produce, preserves, and more.
The barn is also home to the Bayfield Winery (we did a little wine tasting and preferred the sweetness of their Cherry Farm House Cider) as well as a gift shop, and houses many interesting collections & antiques on display.

We climbed upstairs to look out the window at the view of Lake
Superior's Apostle Islands.
In the window overlooking Lake Superior in the distance, there was this:
"I do my thing.
And you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations.
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you. And I am I.
And if by chance we find each other,
