Progressive Farming Group Aims to Protect and Improve 

Sheboygan River Watershed

  “Changing farming practices takes time .... 

but (change) is growing in Wisconsin.”


john-nelson

Thanks to some great financial support and a committed group of area farmers, the Sheboygan River Progressive Farmers (SRPF) are well poised to join other Wisconsin farming groups taking a proactive stance on water quality, soil health and other conservation issues.  


SRPF joins a growing list of producer-led, conservation-minded agricultural coalitions forming throughout the Midwest. They combine innovative technologies with thoughtful farm management practices - such as low-impact manure spreading and cover cropping - to minimize water and air pollution that can negatively impact the watershed. Peninsula Pride Farms in Kewaunee and Door Counties and Yahara Pride Farms in Dane County are leading similar drives to encourage farmers to “walk the walk” when it comes to protecting Wisconsin’s natural resources and human health.

Every year LNRP, the Lake Michigan Stakeholders, and several other partner groups invite the

In years past, we have hosted authors, government officials, business leaders, artists, and others to this day-long celebration of all things having to do with our wonderful lake. We share stories, we celebrate successes, we inspire each other, and we honor those who go above and beyond to protect and advocate for the lake.
