The event may have been over a month ago, but all of the planning committees involved with Wisconsin Farm Technology Days hosted by Kewaunee County are still hard at work. Final reports are being compiled for the Wood County Farm Technology Days committees, which will host the event next year. Executive Chairperson Amber Hewett says it is not just a time to reflect on what worked well (introducing local foods at concession areas) and what did not work as well (vendor departure on the final day), but the time spent together over the last three years planning for the state’s largest agricultural show.
The show, which featured an attendance greater than the county’s population, is expected to exceed the net profit goals of the Executive Committee. Hewett says final numbers, including the distribution of money to volunteer-driven local groups during Farm Technology Days, will be released in September.
