The Otsego County Soil & Water Conservation District’s 2018 Otsego County Farm Tour was held on October 12th 2018. Three farms that have undergone improvements made possible by Otsego County Soil & Water Conservation District, New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, Farm Service Agency, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service were showcased during this event. View our slideshow of Farm Tour photos below.
Otsego County Soil & Water Conservation District implemented $1,697,759.60 for four projects in our county this year alone. Grant money helps boost the productivity of our agricultural community while improving the quality of our environment. In turn, this natural resource improvement serves as an investment in our economic future as agritourism and ecotourism become more popular in our already tourism-centric economy.
