Has anyone ever been to this skete (St. Isaac of Syria in Wisconsin) or know about their mission?

I know they produce reproduction and original icons, that's about all I know.

I have been there. They were/are still under the Bulgarian Patariarchal Church and Metropolitan Joseph. The brotherhood is quite small--maybe down to one monk now. Fr. Symeon is no longer the priest. I'm not sure where he is. He could still be there--as far as I know he owns the land. Their icon business continues, however, and there service for my last order was extremely prompt. For a time, between the time they left ROCOR and went to Bulgaria, the were under a pseudodox bishop.
