About the Event

Pack your camp chair and join us for a summer’s afternoon in June! 

All women farmers, landowners and conservationists from Sauk, Columbia, Green Lake and surrounding counties are welcome to attend-- whatever your background, from beginners to experts!

Curious about sustainable, organic farming practices? This is the field day for you! Maureen has progressed through various models of production, from conventional, to organic, to what is now termed as regenerative.  Maureen is the Sauk County Conservation Coach for the WiWiC project and has been instrumental in implementing conservation practices on the land.  At this field day, you will get to hear from her on why conservation is so important to this family, and how they have prioritized this work on the family farm. We are thrilled to also have Maureen’s daughter, Justine, participate in this field day.  She centers conservation in her career path and her role on the family farm.  We'd love to have you join them in conversation about what they are thinking about and planning for next steps on the farm. 

Catering will be provided by The Relish Tray Bistro and Catering- focusing on the foods grown on the farm (doing beef sliders and a variety of veggie-forward dishes based on what is in season). This is a woman-owned business. 

Please note that we will need participants to bring camp or lawn chairs. Thank you!
