Since 1965, a warm and pleasant aroma wafts across the quiet little town of Blair, Wisconsin. Many in the 1,200-population town can’t resist following that tasty smell to Countryside Lefse, where they find authentic potato lefse and the smiles of Marshall and Amy Olson, the owners.
For Marshall and Amy, the love of lefse goes back to when they enjoyed it as kids. Then, lefse was a freshly-baked home tradition passed down from generation to generation. It’s almost impossible to find this kind of lefse today in a store. Marshall and Amy have worked hard to make sure there will always be one source for truly delicious, completely traditional lefse, hand-rolled using real russet potatoes.
And word keeps growing about Countryside Lefse. From state fairs, popular Norwegian restaurants and brew pubs to church dinners, reunions and picnics, Countryside Lefse is served throughout the country to the enjoyment of all who come within sight or smell. And for that, we'd just like to say, "Mange Takk!"
I can't tell you how you have changed our lives, since I found you at the Norweian festival in MN a few many years ago. You have taken the stress off my mother to produce the product which as you know is tedious and heavy-laden on the body. When you have arthritis it's worse. I CAN'T KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT ABOUT YOUR PRODUCT! I wanted to say THANKS for a suberb product and I love your website update also. Love to see the pictures. It gives a whole better understanding of what level you push this product out for us lovers of lefse. - Rita Fox
