$300,000 In Grant Funding To Be Shared By 14 Businesses In State

Fourteen Wisconsin businesses are sharing 300-thousand dollars in grant funding as part of the 2021 Buy Local Buy Wisconsin campaign. Ryan Dunn with DATCP says the funding will go towards improvements at ag and food based businesses across the state.

“Multiple entities are going to benefit from that, and really hopefully make nice long lasting impression on the food sales.”)

That money is going towards a wide variety of projects. 45 Mercantile in Antigo, B and E Trees in Viroqua and Vesperman Farms in Lancaster will be spending it on new marketing campaigns, and the Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Association is improving its website and newsletters to potential members.
