Conservation efforts for big and small farms alike

Nick Guilette proves you do not need to be one of the “big guys” to farm like one. Guilette runs his family farm, a 300-acre operation straddling the Door-Kewaunee line that grows cash crops like corn, soybeans, and winter wheat. He is also the conservation coordinator for Ebert Enterprises in Algoma, which operates on 8,000 acres to help feed its 3,000 cows. A member of both Peninsula Pride Farms and the Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Network, Guilette says there is a misconception that only the large-scale operations can afford to take on some of the conservation strategies his groups have been championing over the last several years. He believes everyone can, though it may look different from farm to farm.

Guilette will show off the success of his cover crops mixture and the use of fertilizer on cover crops as a part of the next Conservation Conversation at his farm in Casco on October 25th from 5 to 6 p.m. You can learn more about the event by clicking this link.
