Profiles in Stewardship: How California Specialty Crop Growers are Producing a Better Environment
Across the Golden State, California farmers are increasingly recognizing their responsibility to contribute to a healthier environment.
This portfolio of profiles compiled by American Farmland Trust showcases outstanding real-world examples of environmental stewardship by California specialty crop farmers. These are stories of farmers and families that have undertaken significant efforts to increase on-farm conservation practices.
In a world where consumers increasingly care about how and where their food is produced, better stewardship practices are key to enhancing the California agricultural brand. California farmers must be ready to rise to the challenge. We believe these stories will inform and inspire other specialty crop growers to pursue environmental quality as an integral and prominent feature of their operations.
Profiles contain contact information for the farmer and each has agreed to be contacted as a resource for other California farmers hoping to implement similar practices. Reach out. These farmers want to help.
