Many Wisconsin farms are family-owned and passed down for generations. Take a tour of a local farm to learn about Wisconsin's rich agricultural history and how today's farms are using the best practices in the industry.
Field to Fork – Feeding Your Family
Your food makes many stops from the field to your dinner table. Take a journey of diverse agriculture, following how it is grown and harvested...processed and packaged...shipped locally and globally...and finally ends up on your table.
Wisconsin’s Diverse Agriculture – From Alfalfa to Zucchini
Wisconsin is one of the most diverse agricultural states in the nation. Our state’s broad range of climate, landscape, soils, and seasons allows us to fill our grocery baskets with every food group necessary for healthy bodies and absolutely delicious meals.
Common Ground – Balancing Farming and the Environment
Farmers often are called stewards of the land because of the close connection they have with it. Their livelihood and way of life depends on their ability to sustainably use the land and water. Advancements in technology and science have paved the way for farmers to develop and refine practices that safeguard our environment.
Wisconsin – America’s Dairyland
You know Wisconsin is called the dairy state. But what you might not know is why, or the impact it has on your life. Every day, a top priority for dairy farmers in the state is caring for their cows to create wholesome, nutritious dairy products for everyone to enjoy.
Advances in Food Production – The Cutting Edge
Today’s advancements in technology and science allow farmers to care for the land and animals better than ever. You’ll be amazed by the techniques, tools and practices today’s farmers are implementing to provide healthy crops and livestock, protect the environment for future generations, and increase production to feed a growing population.
