Consumers are making more purchasing decisions based on farmers’ conservation and stewardship practices. To help establish trust in our products and increase purchase power, ADA North East is helping dairy farmers find more ways to show their commitment to stewardship.

Pennsylvania farmers can apply for technical and financial assistance to improve and enhance natural resources on farms and forest land, and for conservation easements to protect agricultural land from development, and to restore and protect wetlands. Applications are due March 20, 2020, for USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) programs in the 2020 fiscal year.
