Area children know Montfort as “the town with windmills, delicious popcorn and the best ice cream anywhere!” Not a bad recommendation! The wind-powered turbines stretching along Highway 18 can be seen for miles. Just across the highway, stop at the Tower Junction for food, spirits and bowling. Primarily an agricultural community, Montfort has an artisan cheese plant, Rural Route 1 specialty popcorn, and numerous small businesses including hardware, grocery and other essential services. Located at the junction of state highway 80 and US Hwy 18, it is only a 45 minute drive to Madison.
