Jefferson County is proud to have two Producer-led Watershed Protection Groups, the Jefferson County Soil Builders and the Rock River Regenerative Graziers.

Both groups have received a second year of funding from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) as well as a generous donation from The Nature Conservancy. The groups will use their funds for a variety of programming: conservation practice cost-share program, professional development of farmer members, educational programs and research.
