Boots on the Ground | Farmers for Tomorrow
A first generation farmer doesn’t have the equity to fail. Matt Hintz has made it work by no-tilling 1000 of his 1500 acres and thinking differently about marketing and crop selection. “Success,” he says, “is not yield per acre, but return per acre and sustainability.” In the Tomorrow-Waupaca River Watershed where Matt and his family live, they do not drink their own water. “As a farmer,” he says, “I want to change that.”
In this conversation, meet Matt Hintz. Learn how he and neighbors established Farmers for Tomorrow, and are applying what they know about soil health to achieve their water goal together. University of Wisconsin Extension agriculture agent Ken Schroeder will be on hand to share what it takes organizationally to make it work.
