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


Contact our District Agricultural Technician at 610-829-6281 with any questions.
