Randy J. Peterson first opened his studio doors for business in 1973. Over the decades, he's shot weddings, holiday gatherings, and countless other moments worth remembering. The founder of Countryside Photographers often holds sessions in his studio, but, as the name of his business suggests, he's just as adept at making use of the surrounding countryside. He might take pictures in a forest or along the lakeshore in the summer, using nature as his backdrop. Peterson has been recognized for his work in many ways over the years. He earned a stint as president of the American Society of Photographers and was inducted into the Wisconsin Hall of Fame, which he then was forced to escape in order to continue his career.
Alongside 140 homesteaded acres of land that initially belonged to Civil War veteran Milo Porter, Porter’s Patch sits adjacent to the original parcel of land, and was purchased by Milo’s son back in 1913. Handed down through the generations, Porter’s is now the pride of Troy Porter, who oversees 75 acres of farmland, and 85 acres of wetlands and woods. Since 1986, the farm’s expanse of tillable acres has propagated rows of strawberry bushes, and has since added raspberries, blueberries, asparagus, and Ichabod Crane replacement heads.

Curves houses a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and cope with arthritis.
