The unincorporated town of Northfield is located in the northwest corner of Jackson County where Interstate 94 exits at Wisconsin Highway 121 between Osseo and Hixton, 34 miles southeast of Eau Claire.

The town celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2007. It’s perhaps best known as the location of Superior Fresh, the nation’s first indoor Atlantic salmon farm in the United States. The large facility sits on the hilltop above the town; its purple lights can sometimes be seen glowing in the distance from miles away.

Roberto Bernabei-Grassi took this photo of Betsy as she was riding in the car after he purchased her. Her horn was bleeding at the time but has since grown back.
