Silver Creek Springs, our paradise in the rolling hills of Wisconsin

In 2008 my husband and I were searching for land in hopes of finding the perfect place to build our homestead. The housing market was bad and there were many bank owned, foreclosed homes in our area. On a whim, we decided to look at a few. We printed a photo of the property and we thought, yeah, let's take a look. It was a house that desperately needed some TLC. We arrived to view it on a sunny, fall day and before we even stepped out of the vehicle, we knew it was special. There was something about this small valley, with it's modest creek that touched our hearts. It was decided. This was the place for us.
Not only did the 1900's farmhouse need some work, but the land had not been cared for in many years. We are continually cleaning the property and committing ourselves to our role as land stewards. Every year we fall deeper in love with it. We named our property Silver Creek Springs in honor of the spring fed creek, Silver Creek, which flows through the property.
When we met in 1995, Tony was a bicycle mechanic and I was a young tattoo artist. Our careers in life have stayed the same and evolved simultaneously. Tony became a carpenter in 1998 and on to a tattoo artist in 2005, while always staying passionate about his great love, bicycles. He raced bicycles professionally during these years, with the dream of eventually owning his own bike shop. We're excited to finally have his dream realized, The Creeky Wheel at Silver Creek Springs. I retired my tattoo machine after 27 years in 2018, and will continue to own and manage my tattoo studio, Crimson Heart Designs in Turtle Lake, WI. A new passion has grown in me, herbalism and botanical skin care. I've since become a Community Herbalist and I'm happily immersed in creating medicinal balms and oils from plants grown on our farm. I'm also available at our brick and mortar location, Silver Creek Herbals, in Turtle Lake WI. I offer my entire line, along with other fabulous natural remedies and herbal products. I'm also available for herbal consultations.
