With the help of your cell phone, you will soon be able to learn more about what is going on in farm fields in Door and Kewaunee Counties and why it is being done. Peninsula Pride Farms announced the initiative at their annual meeting earlier this year to post signs with QR-codes on them for people to scan. Once scanned, users can learn more about the farm itself, buffer zone techniques, and the cover crops being grown. Kinnard Farms owner Lee Kinnard will have several of the signs lining his fields in southern Door and Kewaunee Counties. He believes it can be very informative for curious motorists or even area farmers as well.
Your smartphone must have an app that can read QR codes installed and be connected to the Internet in order for the technology to work. Peninsula Pride Farms also hosts a number of field days throughout the year focusing on other conservation techniques.
