CASCO, Wis. — In less than a year, Peninsula Pride Farms is making big strides to its vision of clean, safe water in Kewaunee and southern Door counties.
About 100 people attended Peninsula Pride’s initial annual meeting on Jan. 25 at JW’s to hear what the farmer-led non-profit has accomplished since it was established in March 2016.
“Peninsula Pride has accomplished so much in less than a year,” said Dennis Frame of Timber Ridge Consulting, a consultant who has worked with other farmer-led conservation organizations. “The farmers here were ready to step up and take leadership. They are definitely further along than other groups were at this stage.”
