SMALL FARMS AND RURAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Farmers, entrepreneurs and consumers in Northwest Wisconsin are building new approaches to food and to family farming.

We will explore questions such as: Can small farms remain in the landscape in the face of agricultural consolidation? Can small farms that grow and sell consumable foods help build-up rural communities? Can small farms and related small business help create a vibrant economic future, while protecting and promoting clean air, clean water, and quality of life in our rural places?
