In late March 2016, the Milwaukee River Watershed Clean Farm Families Council was born.

This was the first time in thirty years that an organized group of farmers in this region had gathered to address water and soil conservation issues that affect their farms’ bottom-line.

Multiple ideas were generated by this group who would lead the farmer lead charge of helping preserve the farming lands of the Milwaukee River Watershed Area!
