Program Reaches out to Minority Farmers Submitted: 02/16/2013
MADISON - A state assistance program will help Wisconsin's minority farmers navigate the resources available for their success.

The program is run by the Wisconsin Farm Center of the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

Workshops are held across the state in areas of large minority farmer populations. This includes La Crosse, Eau Claire, Green Bay, the Fox Cities, Wausau, Madison, and Milwaukee.

Many minority farmers grow vegetables, herbs and flowers to sell directly at farmers markets.

The program helps those farmers renting farmland negotiate solid lease agreements.
