Introduction to the Environmentally Friendly Farm Program

  • An Environmentally Friendly Farm implements Best Management Practices (BMPs) to maintain healthy pastures, reduce soil erosion, limit nutrient runoff from animal facilities and barnyards, and properly store and handle manure (nutrients).
  • Farm managers who practice environmental stewardship maintain healthy environments for their animals, their families, and their community.

 

The Environmentally Friendly Farm Program has been developed by Penn State Extension Equine and is designed to recognize farms that adopt environmentally sound management practices that protect water quality and the environment.

The Environmentally Friendly Farm Program is designed to recognize equine and livestock operations that practice environmental stewardship.
