Celebrating Earth Day with on-farm conservation

Farmers across the country use conservation practices, including regenerative agriculture, cover crops, no-till and more.

Farmers are conservationists, and they practice it every day; not just on Earth Day. They work to install buffer strips to reduce nutrient runoff. They use prairie strips to enhance pollinator habitat. They plant a multitude of cover crops and they even use old produce from grocery stores to feed cattle.

For Earth Day, we're showcasing some of our favorite conservation-minded farmers across the United States. Click through the gallery to learn more about how these row-crop farmers and livestock ranchers are leaving their land in better shape for the next generations.
