The US Department of Agriculture announced two important program opportunities for farmers and ranchers. They are the Conservation Stewardship Program (now open until Feb 7, 2014) and the Value Added Producer Grant Program (open until Feb 24, 2014).
Conservation Stewardship Program
Farmers, ranchers, and foresters have until February 3 to submit applications to their local Natural Resources Conservation Service. The original deadline was January 17, and we successfully pushed for the extension!
