Linda Schulte planned to retire when she and her husband, Steve, moved back to Coon Valley to be closer to family.
Her retirement didn’t last long. She wanted to participate in area craft shows with her sister, Mary Schmidt, of Coon Valley, so Linda started the Coon Valley Fudge and Candy Company last summer.
The business, which makes many varieties of creamy fudge, operates from a commercial kitchen in the rear of the Thrifty Creations building at 219 Central Ave., along Hwy. 14/61 in downtown Coon Valley.
