Growing Wisconsin Magazine Showcases State Agriculture

Growing Wisconsin Magazine Showcases State Agriculture

Introducing the Growing Wisconsin magazine. The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is excited to present this 56-page full color publication as a way to connect readers with our state’s agricultural community.

“Wisconsin agriculture has a great story to tell, and this magazine not only offers an opportunity to showcase our thriving industry but to highlight for the world what Wisconsin has to offer,” said DATCP Secretary Ben Brancel. “I hope readers will enjoy stories about the farms and businesses that make Wisconsin strong.”

This privately funded publication is designed to showcase Wisconsin’s diverse agricultural industry that contributes $59 billion to our state’s economy. This magazine also highlights the agency’s work to ensure a fair marketplace for both consumers and honest businesses through the Trade and Consumer Protection division.

Growing Wisconsin includes stories about family-owned dairy farms and the growing number of local wineries and breweries. You can learn more about your Wisconsin-grown Christmas tree or our tasty specialty meats and cheeses. Also featured is Wisconsin’s leadership role in agricultural exports, technology and research.

The Growing Wisconsin magazine will be distributed, free of charge, to public places around the state such as doctors’ offices, veterinarian clinics, chambers of commerce and libraries. Copies will also be available in the lobby of DATCP, 2811 Agriculture Drive, Madison. The goal is to educate rural and urban communities alike about the impact agriculture has on all our lives.
