Green County gains small farms
MONROE - The old expression "Go big or go home" is losing its effect in Green County, where more than 80 percent of its land is in farms. After reviewing the 2012 Agriculture Census for Wisconsin, released May 2, Mark Mayer, Green County UW-Extension agent, found Green County is "bucking the state averages" when it comes to losing small farming operations. "These numbers certainly go against the theory that we now have all large farms," he said in a statement Monday.
