Although Wisconsin is known as America’s Dairyland, the state is rich in all aspects of agriculture. The agricultural industry brings $88.3 billion to the state every year. To get to that number, you have to have a huge amount of agricultural activity. From cranberries to ginseng to potatoes and beyond, Wisconsin seems to have it all. People don’t realize how diverse agriculture is in the state of Wisconsin.
To help people understand the industry that brings so much to their state, Wisconsin is building a state-of-the-art interactive education center. What began as the Wisconsin Agricultural Education Center has become the Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center.
Not only will Farm Wisconsin be a good chance for dairy farmers to tell our story, but it is an opportunity for consumers to learn where their food is coming from. A lot of the time, they have no idea that it’s coming right from their own state!
Majestic Crossing Dairy is proud to be a part of Farm Wisconsin. Construction is underway and the center is on target to be finished in the first half of 2018 and open for visitors next summer. It’s amazing how quickly the construction is going. I drive by the construction site often, and I’m always surprised at what’s been added.
You can watch a live feed of the construction here, and be sure to follow Farm Wisconsin on Facebook to stay up-to-date on all of the progress. Visit the Farm Wisconsin website to contribute to the campaign. We are excited to visit the center when it’s finished to show everyone what Wisconsin is made of!
