Eat Local!

Many of us wait all year for the much too brief Farmer’s Market season and while Barron’s market has been open for a couple weeks, Cumberland’s quaint market has yet to start up. The last weekend in July is when it usually kicks off, running through September and some years into October when the harvest is good.  Always on Saturday mornings from 8AM to 12PM in the parking lot behind Cumberland Public Library, this small market draws a big crowd! Support local farmers, community members and pick up more than just your veggies here! Varying from week to week some times including baked goods, jewelry, candles and soap it’s worth it to stop every week to make sure you don’t miss anything!

Timberland Trail: Timberland Hills is located about 9 miles Northwest of Cumberland, WI on County Highway H. This 24 Km trail system situated on 2400 wooded acres of Burnett County forest land. From gentle rolling terrain to the screaming hills of “The Ridge Run” and the “Outer Loop”, Timberland Hills offers fun and excitement for the beginning hiker and skier to the expert.

The Ice Age Trail is just north of Cumberland.  See here for more info on the ice age.

Beaver Dam Lake

At 1163 acres, there’s plenty of room to accommodate fishing boats, pontoons, canoes, standup paddleboards and speed boats. Adored by locals and out-of-towners alike, quiet bays mixed with a lengthy stretch of straight lake offer something for everyone. While we’ll never tell where our favorite fishing spots are, we can tell you that you’ll find panfish, bass and walleye in the lake.

Feeling Idle? take a paddle board onto Norwegian Bay and enjoy quiet waters as you tour the “other half” of town. More Wild? launch the speed boat and tubes and scream down the western half of the lake!
