The area crops harvested this past fall are a distant memory, but Door and Kewaunee farmers look for brighter days while maintaining their farmstead. Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm in southern Door County explains how farmers stay busy this time of year.
Olson says it is challenging for small farms to prosper with the low prices of milk and other commodities. According to state agricultural officials, 648 Wisconsin dairy farms have shut down in the first ten months this year. The state lost 500 farms in 2017.
