A country drive through Boistfort Road will take you past acres that were once home to enormous fields of hops. Herman Klaber once owned the largest hopyard and drying kiln in the United States, and a historical marker pays tribute to that legacy.
Farming began in the area in 1851 and continues in earnest to this day. You can see several farms that supply the area with wheat, hay and much more. Many of our area's Farmers Markets are supplied with vegetables and other foods grown right here in the Boistfort Valley and Adna areas.
Boistfort was also the boyhood home to none other than aviation pioneer Scott Crossfield, the first American to reach Mach 2 as part of the famous rivalry with Chuck Yeager. Crossfield learned to fly at the same time that he attended Boistfort High School.
