Agricultural Environmental Regulations: Am I in Compliance?


With suburbia encroaching on Northampton County’s farmlands, it is important that we provide continued support and assistance to local farmers. The District can offer technical assistance to farms that: 

  • apply manure and fertilizer
  • need to install stream crossings and stream bank fencing for livestock and/or
  • want to minimize soil erosion so that they are eligible for state and federal programs and protect environmental resources

 

The District works closely with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (Formerly Soil Conservation Service) in solving complex conservation issues on agricultural lands.
