Kewaunee Farmer Speaks at Global Food Forum

Kewaunee County farmer Don Niles took the stage as one of the leading voices of agriculture at the Wall Street Journal’s Global Food Forum on Oct. 7 in New York. 

Niles, president of Peninsula Pride Farms, was one of just 12 speakers at the event, appearing among leaders from Cargill, McDonald’s, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the World Bank. He sat on a panel alongside Suzy Friedman, senior director of agricultural sustainability for the Environmental Defense Fund – one of the world’s largest environmental organizations, with 2.5 million members and a staff of 700 scientists, economists, policy experts and other professionals.

Farmers in Kewaunee and southern Door counties formed Peninsula Pride Farms in 2016 to share innovations to help protect water quality on the peninsula.
