August 6, 2018

RIver Friendly Farmer awardSince 1999, key conservation and agricultural organizations have sponsored the River Friendly Farmer (RFF) Program. The statewide initiative recognizes farmers, who through good production management practices helps keep Indiana’s rivers, lakes and streams clean.

Annually, each county Soil and Water Conservation District may nominate up to two farmers who do an outstanding job of protecting their rivers, lakes and streams through their every day conservation management practices on the farm. Watershed organizations also may nominate farmers for the award by submitting an application to a county SWCD.

Two area farmers from Starke County will be honored at the State Fair on Wednesday, August 15th with the awards.  The Starke County Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce the Bope Farm and Cody Kozubik as this year’s recipients.
