Delores Fortuna - Rusk County

View descriptionShare

Delores Fortuna is the third generation on her family's Centennial farm in Rusk County. In 1919, her grandfather, a Polish immigrant, traveled from a collapsed mine in Pennsylvania to northern Wisconsin and purchased the farm -- without looking at the full acreage. Delores calls the property a hardship farm with sandy soil and difficult terrain for raising crops and a dairy herd. While she and her sister did not carry on dairying, Delores is turning the land into a conservancy -- bringing back birds, marshland and hardwood trees to the area.
