Specialty Crops Make Wisconsin Agriculture Special
Ashley Hagenow
Ashley Hagenow is the 76th Alice in Dairyland
Agriculture in Wisconsin contributes $104.8 billion annually to our state’s economy and provides jobs for nearly 12% of the state’s workforce. As America’s Dairyland, it makes sense that a large portion of that economic impact comes from dairy, but the diversity of our agricultural production is what makes it so impactful and special. We are the top producing state in the nation for snap beans, cranberries, and ginseng.
