The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) has certified the 2021 Wisconsin Cherry Board election results. Starting July 1, 2021, Terry Sorenson of Sturgeon Bay and Barry Peterson of Green Bay will begin a three-year term as elected members of the Wisconsin Cherry Board.
The Wisconsin Cherry Board is composed of five at-large members that are responsible for administering Wisconsin’s Cherry Marketing Order. The board oversees the collection and use of approximately $50,000 in assessment fees paid by Wisconsin cherry growers. This funding is used to support the cherry industry through research, education, and promotion of Wisconsin-grown cherries.
