About Us

Peg Sheaffer

Development & Marketing Director

Peg joined MEA as Director of Development & Marketing in September 2018. She has twenty years of marketing and outreach experience in the fields of sustainable agriculture and resource conservation. Most recently, Peg worked as a program director at a sustainable agriculture organization where she designed and implemented training programs for a regional network of conservation-minded farmers.

Peg and her family raise pastured pork and poultry on a farm near Brodhead. She was introduced to Midwest Environmental Advocates several years ago when she and a group of neighbors started working together to protect their rural Green County community from threats posed by large-scale industrial agriculture. Having seen first-hand the way MEA’s legal assistance empowers ordinary citizens, she is motivated to help make similar services available to more Wisconsin communities.
