The City of Fitchburg Agriculture Route (FAR) consists of a 4.5-mile segment of the Badger State Trail running north to south through the City’s agricultural lands. The FAR is part of the City’s larger 19-mile Heritage Circle Route, a conceptual recreational trail/path encircling the City. Spread out along the FAR are areas vital to Fitchburg’s history, as well as various existing enterprises that promote, sustain, and enhance agriculture in the City. These areas and enterprises collectively serve as a vital component of the City’s history, identity, and economy.

The City has recently installed four “Agriculture Past and Present” interpretive signs along the FAR to begin to tell the story of the importance of the aforementioned areas and enterprises to the City’s history, identity, and economy.

Check out the signs on your next Badger State Trail bike ride. For further information on the FAR, please contact Wade Thompson, the City’s Resource/Project Planner, at or 608-270-4258.
