Tuesday on Lake Effect

A recap of some of our favorite interviews from Full Plate: our summer long series on agriculture in southeastern Wisconsin. First, a look back at our conversation with food contributor Kyle Cherek, who takes a deep dive into the history of Wisconsin agriculture. Then, we learn about an unlikely project to plant rice in southeastern Wisconsin and get a lesson on dairy economics. Plus, why bees need cities and cities need bees.

Guests: 

  • Kyle Cherek, Lake Effect food contributor
  • Michael Schlappi, scientist and associate professor, Marquette University
  • Maggie Stang, apiarist
  • Bob Cropp, professor emeritus and dairy marketing policy specialist, University of Wisconsin-Madison
