Peninsula Pride Farms reflects on positives

Even after the wettest year on record, it was not enough to dampen the spirits of those in attendance at the Peninsula Pride Farms Annual Meeting in Luxemburg on Thursday. Over 100 farmers and agriculture professionals attended the meeting, which included a presentation by Timm Uhlmann from the National Weather Service in Green Bay and a roundtable discussion with members of the Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Farm Network. Farmers Lee Kinnard, Jacob Brey, Aaron Augustian, and Derek Ducat discussed their field management practices that have led to over 10,000 acres of members’ land being cover cropped in 2019. There is a lot more work to be done, but Peninsula Pride Farms President Don Niles says he is happy with the progress and the response their efforts have made.

Among the pieces of data shared at the annual meeting showed that eight member farms were able to reduce their phosphorus loss by over 6,700 pounds due to new cover crop practices.
