Winnebago County grants Experimental Aircraft Association permit to grow crops at Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH)



OSHKOSH — The Experimental Aircraft Association is getting into the farming business at Wittman Regional Airport.

The Winnebago County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a permit Tuesday for the Experimental Aircraft Association to lease 45 acres for unrestricted farming, including soybeans, alfalfa, hay and corn, and another 38 acres for low-growth farming (so no corn).

At a rental rate of $175 an acre, the total rent for the first year will be $14,175. The permit has been approved from Jan. 1 to the end of 2021, so the total amount of revenue gained by the agreement will be $42,525.

No farming will be allowed on the property between July 15 and Aug. 5, so AirVenture will be relatively free of hay dust.
