Ranked third in the nation for potato production, and number one east of the Mississippi, our 140 growers work together to provide the best Wisconsin potatoes and vegetables for consumers. To that end, we established the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association in 1948. Headquartered in Antigo, Wisconsin, we help our growers conduct and utilize the latest research and technologies, garner government support, produce environmentally sound research and stay in touch with consumers.
We also support the Wisconsin Healthy Grown™ initiative — sustainable farming that uses environmentally sound crop inputs, integrated pest management techniques and promotes the conservation of water, resources and Wisconsin’s native ecosystems.
If you’d like to learn more about Wisconsin farmers and the opportunities and challenges of agribusiness, please visit New Family Farm. This blog site explores how farming in Wisconsin affects the state’s water and environment, but also how it impacts the mother who feeds her kids with vegetables grown locally, or the hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin residents employed in agriculture.
