Sheboygan River Progressive Farmers Set A Date

Sheboygan River Progressive Farmers will review the group’s progress from the past year and explore strategies for building soil health while sustaining farm profitability on Feb. 9 during its conference and annual meeting.

Sheboygan River Progressive Farmers is a nonprofit farmer-led watershed conservation group in the Sheboygan River watershed in Sheboygan and Fond du Lac counties in Wisconsin. Members explore farming strategies that lead to improved soil health, greater farming efficiency, sustained profitability, and reduced environmental impact. The growers share information gained through field trials with fellow farmers and strive to foster an understanding of the role of agriculture in the community.

The annual meeting is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Amore Banquet Hall at 18 W Mill St. in Plymouth. You can register by emailing Laura Hensley at
