Dan & Joanne Lerum
In 2001, we purchased an old dilapidated farmhouse on the corner of Prairie and Hwy 35 (the Great River Road) in the small historic Village of Pepin Wisconsin with no immediate plans except to hopefully build a thriving business. What we created became The Garden Pub & Grille, a family business with us and our two children, Samantha and Jacob, at the helm.
We have also employed scores of folks of all ages to complete our staff. We are especially proud of the kids that have worked for us over the years, not only from Pepin but Durand, Alma, Wabasha, Arkansaw and many other area communities. “It’s exciting to have kids that started with us when they were 14 come back from college to visit.”
