What Does Vennebu Mean? “A Gathering Place for Family and Friends”
Vennebu Hill was named early on during the initial concept phase. The Gothic barn that resides on the top of the great hill at Myklebust Farms in Wisconsin Dells had a magic to it that was not only inviting but peaceful, historic, and picturesque. Mia Myklebust (Vennebu Hill co-owner and executor of Myklebust Farms) suggested the name after a friend made her family a sign that read “Vennebu.”
Partners Katie Klitzke (soon-to-be Vennebu Hill manager) and Dave Muehl (owner of Badger Farms in Deerfield, WI) both liked the sound of the word, but what was its meaning? The Norwegian term meant “a gathering place for friends and family.”
How apropos to name this place ‘Vennebu’ with its beautiful views of the Baraboo bluffs, interesting and unique Gothic style barn, and rich Norwegian culture and family history.
