Larsons respond to Wisconsin
State Supreme Court ruling
A commentary by Mike Larson, general manager of Larson Acres.
We are very pleased that the Wisconsin State Supreme Court has ruled in favor of our family farm operation and determined that the town of Magnolia overstepped its authority when it tried to impose illegal conditions as part of the permitting process.
Larson Acres is a diligent environmental steward and we will continue to use farming methods that protect our land, water and air.
(The) ruling affirms Wisconsin's Livestock Siting Law and confirms a uniform permit process that assures environmental protection.
We are pleased that our long legal battle supports Wisconsin's existing laws, and helps clarify rights for farmers elsewhere.
This isn't only a victory for our fifth-generation family farm, but for farmers across Wisconsin.
This ruling assures that farms across the state are subject to uniform, consistent and fair regulatory standards and need not worry about the possibility of inconsistent and illegal local permit stipulations.
We're pleased that (the) ruling will make it possible for Larson Acres and farmers across Wisconsin to continue to produce wholesome, healthy dairy products, while protecting the environment.
Larson Acres is a family farm operation that has produced high-quality dairy products on its town of Magnolia farm in Rock County for over 90 years.
We are proud to live and work in the town of Magnolia and (appreciate) our many neighbors and friends who continue to support our family farm operation.
