Driftless is a ad-free, independent magazine about food, art, and adventuring in the Midwest. We introduce our readers to the creative and awe-inspiring wonders the Midwest has to offer by way of stories, illustrations, photos, interviews, and recipes. Our 100-page, full color, perfect-bound print magazine is printed biannually and provides tangible proof that the Midwest is more than merely flyover territory.
Our interests lie in exploring the world around us, cooking with fresh, wholesome ingredients, slowing down to fully take in our surroundings and spending time with those who mean the most to us. We love trying new things, eating locally, sharing the wonders of our own backyards and keeping family traditions alive in new and interesting ways. We are hardworking, kind, resourceful and down-to-earth. We are always inspired by the Great Lakes. We are a cultural crossroads — we are the Midwest.
