Grant helps farmers dabble in conservation

Peninsula Pride Farms and 26 other similar groups received another endorsement for their work last month when it received a combined $750,000 in producer-led watershed grant funding. The locally-based organization received $10,000 in funding to address soil and water issues in Door and Kewaunee Counties. PPF President Don Niles says the funding goes towards the organization’s cost-sharing program, which gives farmers confidence to try some of the conservation practices others have been testing out on their own operations.

Peninsula Pride Farms, which made up of dozens of farms in Door and Kewaunee Counties has received the producer-led watershed grant each of the last four years.
