Connecting Food, Farming and Family

What Makes Wisconsin Agriculture Great?

We depend on our farming communities for affordable and abundant food, economic vitality, and stewardship of our state's resources. Agriculture is more than just farming; it's how we feed our families, how we use our natural resources, and our way of life. From dairies to cranberries, Wisconsin is home to a robust and diverse agriculture community that generates a variety of products.
