Peninsula Pride Farms hopes more people learn more about what the group is doing when it hosts its annual meeting next month. After being held at restaurants its first two years, the farmer-led conservation group will host its annual meeting this year at the Kewaunee County Fairground Exhibit Hall. After morning sessions take place, seafood ambassador Ewell Smith will give a keynote address. Peninsula Pride Farms President Don Niles says attendees will be surprised about how Smith’s experience with the fishing industry in the Gulf of Mexico relates to dairy and crop farming in Kewaunee and southern Door counties.
Peninsula Pride Farms partnered with UW Discovery Farms and the Natural Resources Conservation Service to set up a number of field days throughout the year to highlight different conservation practices with ideas on how to implement them.
