The last 12 months have brough a lot of stories to Wisconsin Agriculturist. We recognized Master Agriculturists, weathered the drought this summer and shared stories of kindness, perseverance and local operations. Some of our favorites included:
Benefits of conservation practices
Making European-style butter
Local tart cherry production
Thank you for following Wisconsin Agriculture with us this year! We’re looking forward to sharing more local production, families and leadership in the coming year.
