Nominate A Cherry Grower

The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is accepting nominations through March 31 for one seat on the Wisconsin Cherry Board.

The 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.

DATCP will mail nomination forms to eligible growers. Producers must sign, notarize, and postmark completed nomination forms by March 31 and include signatures from at least five eligible growers other than the nominee. Growers should mail completed forms to P.O. Box 8911, Madison, WI 53708-8911. Growers who have not received a nomination form by March 1 or have other questions about the nomination process should email

DATCP will conduct the Wisconsin Cherry Board election from May 10 through June 15, 2023. Elected growers will serve three-year terms beginning July 1 and ending June 30, 2026.
