Posted September 2016
A night to celebrate Wisconsin’s farmers, working lands, and rural heritage and recognize the need to conserve the state’s natural resources for everyone’s benefit. Enjoy a lively band, locally-grown food and bushels of fun in a beautifully restored, 160-year-old barn on a fifth-generation, grass-based, family dairy farm!
Proceeds from the event benefit the Partnering for Progress nonprofit partners: Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership, Gathering Waters: Wisconsin’s Alliance for Land Trusts, and the Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers. Saxon Homestead Farm collaborates with these three organizations to work toward the shared goal of keeping Wisconsin’s communities thriving. The central mission of Partnering for Progress is to conserve farmland and natural resources, support beginning and continuing farmers, and sustain vibrant communities to improve rural and urban life in Wisconsin.
