Wisconsin Farm Groups Receive Money

The USDA has issued $750,000 to the Wisconsin Specialty Crops industry to promote healthy competition. The money comes from $49 million set aside for producers across the country.
The money will be given to those who produce specialty fruits, vegetables, nuts and flowers.
For example, The Wisconsin Grape Growers will receive $35,000 to be used for educational materials. The Wisconsin Cranberry Growers will be given $16,500 to use on studies connecting marshes with solar and wind energy.
$35,000 will also be used by the state’s agriculture department to create and operate SavorWisconsin.com. This website is used for direct promotion of specialty crops.
