Farming

Just as we gather together to enjoy delicious meals with great company, farmers do the same to ensure we have fresh food on the table.

Farming

As consumers, we often forget how big of a role agriculture plays in our livelihood. Contrary to popular belief, more than 96 percent of Wisconsin farms are family-owned.
