Farmers can add their operations to the legacy of this summer’s Wisconsin Farm Technolgy Days in Kewaunee County through the Landmark Farm program. Any working farms in Kewaunee County and adjoining townships in neighboring counties can support the three-day event by helping it defray the operating costs. Landmark Farm chairperson Jeff Montsma says it is a great way for every operation, whether it be dairy, livestock, cash grain, vegetables, or specialty, be a part of the event and show the area’s agricultural diversity.
Landmark Farms receive recognition both at their operations and during Farm Technology Days taking place July 11 through 13 at Ebert Enterprises in Algoma. Remaining funds from the event will stay in Kewaunee County as grants for youth education, outreach, and other agricultural opportunities. So far, there are over 30 farms with the status.
