Cooperative?

Very interesting meeting in Point with a group of producers.  Our vision is to grow a sustainable Central Wisconsin farming community, producing high quality products and sharing resources.   Pretty inspiring stuff!  Might even convince me to step clearly over the line from large hobbiest to small producer!  Even if  no official co-op is formed the relationships formed here will be invaluable.

It was really great to see a group talking about how they could work together to improve the local food economy.  This is in a stark contrast to a very negative experience at one of the local markets where I was informed that producers would not cooperate or even communicate. This is the same market where I was told that Wausau market consumers don’t care how or where the produce comes from!  Really, then why the big stink a couple of years ago about revealing where the produce is grown?  Grrr.   I think things are changing.
