Amish farmer improves streams
“All these small farms are important to do conservation work because one farm at a time makes a difference.”
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and TeamAg, Inc. explain cost-effective ways an Amish dairy farmer reduces polluted runoff. The farm implemented cow bridges, animal waste storage systems, and stream buffers. Also, buffer trees stabilize stream banks and absorb excess pollution that would otherwise enter the surrounding waterways. This video shows agriculture and conservation practices working together, hand-in-hand.
