About: Amy's Acre launched in 2014 with $1500, a quarter acre of leased land, and a lot of favors from friends and family. In 2017 the farm found a permanent home and now includes two acres of mixed vegetables and a flock of pastured laying hens. Amy Wallner is dedicated to soil health improvement and is working on transitioning long-time conventionally farmed land into organic production. She sells produce at a local farmers market, restaurants in Milwaukee, and on-farm in a custom built roadside stand.
Women Caring for the Land was designed by the Women Food & Ag Network to serve women farmland landowners who are interested in learning more about conservation. Research has shown women value women-only meetings with their peers. These events provide women landowners and farmers the opportunity to network with their peers and learn from resource professionals. For these reasons, we do request that the early portion be women only .
Potluck Dinner, bring a dish to pass! Registration and networking start at 10:00am.
