About us

 
The building was built in 1938 by Earl Karow Sr. He was the town Barber in Cable. When their son Earl Jr. was only 7 years old, tradgically Mrs. Karow passed away. Young Earl needed to be closer to his father during working hours. 
 
The portion of the building that is the now Cirkl North encompasses a once residental area that housed the Karow men and occasionally Grandmas, Aunties, and Cousins. The north end of the building was once a garage.
 
Earl Jr (now Sr himself) took over his father's business and continued to run the Karow Barber Shop.
 
Why all this history about a building? Where's the stuff about the wine and cheese?
 
Well, at Cirkl North we believe it is more than a building, services and products. It's about family, history, and memories. Those are the true componants of life.
 
So to create Cirkl North we used reclaimed wood, recycled equiptment, and refurbished to as close to the original as we could, to preserve the history and memories of the Karow Building.
 
Keeping with that philosophy, our products are made as local as possible here in Wisconsin or from folks like us that value more than the bottom line. We have added the great sport of Stand Up Paddle Boarding to give people the opportunity to get out on one of our Beautiful lakes and take in the sight and sounds of this special place.
 
An evening  in the Northwoods with those special people in your life, a good bottle of wine, fresh cheese, topped off with some sweet homemade candy, now that's making memories! And that's what we are all about.

So remember when daily life has you running in circles, it time to Cirkl North!!
