Precipitation is in the air, soaked in the ground, and on the agenda for Peninsula Pride Farms annual meeting next month. More than 100 farmers, agribusiness professionals, and community members have attended the event each of the last few years as the group highlighted its practices and issues they are currently facing. This year's main keynote speaker is National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration meteorologist Timm Uhlmann, who will speak on the precipitation history and what farmers can expect moving forward. Peninsula Pride Farms President Don Niles says with the area seeing the wettest years they have ever experienced on record, he believes this is important information for everyone involved in agriculture.
The event will also feature a roundtable discussion with members of the Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Farm Network about the practices they tried in 2019. You can find a link to register for the event, which will take place February 13th beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds, here.
