Information & Outreach
The Wisconsin Farm Center, with its staff of professionals who come from diverse agricultural backgrounds, can provide farmers and their family members with a wide range of information and outreach services on a multitude of topics. The center also serves as a resource to connect farmers with many state, university and federal programs. The staff and trained volunteers provide guidance and assistance to help people find the services and information they need.
Wisconsin Farmers' Resource Guide
This on-line resource directory provides information about public and local resources farmers and their family members may find useful. The directory offers program and contact information for a variety of resources including financial, legal, business planning, basic needs, health care, counseling, employment, training, and more. You can search the resource guide by county or by subject area.
Almost every change you make on the farm will need technical assistance, and the Farm Center staff can give you general information as well as link you to those people who can provide specific technical assistance.
One of the unique features of the Farm Center is the solid corps of trained volunteers who donate their time and talents to help Wisconsin's farm families. These volunteers have a variety of skills and backgrounds, but they all share a common love for Wisconsin agriculture and have a common desire to serve.
Outreach and Support
The Farm Center features a number of outreach and support services for farmers and their families. The center's staff and volunteers perform on-farm visits, put on presentations for groups, conduct workshops and seminars on numerous agricultural related topics, and host informational booths at many farms events.
The Farm Center has access to a wide array of agricultural publications, ranging from its own newsletter to a number of additional Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection publications to other ag-related periodicals.
