Helping To Maintain Working Wisconsin Farms

Wisconsin has a program to help farmers keep farming, but the program has shortcomings.

Governor Jim Doyle's 2007-'09 proposed budget includes additional funding, and a diverse study committee has made recommendations to make the program work better, but there is a major need for public education about the program - - or else we'll have less homegrown food and more sprawl.

The Waukesha Freeman published a comprehensive examination of the program, and it's worth a read.
