For the first time in almost 50 years, Wisconsin’s Fairest of the Fairs calls Kewaunee County home. Earlier this week, 2017 Kewaunee County Fairest of the Fair Isabella Haen earned the title, beating out 36 other contestants after going through a series of workshops and question/answer sessions. Over the next year, Haen hopes she can make Kewaunee County and the state of Wisconsin proud as the Fairest of the Fairs while learning some things along the way.
A full-time herdsperson at Kinnard Farms in Casco, Haen will have a busy schedule of attending county fairs, the Wisconsin State Fair, and other agriculture-related events during her one-year reign.
