State and Federal Agencies Assist Farms
(2007-10-10)
(wfcr) - As more Massachusetts farms are seeking better ways to improve productivity and manage their land, several state and federal farm agencies are contributing close to half a million dollars to give farmers faster assistance. Diane Beadeker Pedtit of the United States Department of Agriculture says the new funds will allow aid agencies to help farmers develop individual conservation plans.

Pedit says more than 150 farms in Massachusetts already take advantage of the "accelerated conservation planning partnership" service. Most of the farms are located around the pioneer valley.
