MADISON (WKOW) – A state assistance program is aimed at helping Wisconsin's minority farmers navigate resources to help in their success.
Jack Chang recently joined the Wisconsin Farm Center of the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. Chang works with minorities of all ethnic backgrounds on financial literacy and food safety. Chang will also meet one-on-one with farmers to help them rent farmland and negotiate a solid lease agreement.
Workshops are held across the state in areas of large minority populations, including La Crosse, Eau Claire, Green Bay, the Fox Cities, Wausau, Madison and Milwaukee.
Many minority farmers grow vegetables, herbs and flowers to sell directly at farmers markets.
