Yahara Pride Farms Encourages Environmental Stewardship

Established in 2012, Yahara Pride Farms is a farmer-led 501c(3) non-profit organization that strives to preserve agricultural heritage while simultaneously encouraging farmers to engage in proactive environmental stewardship within the Yahara Watershed. Participating farms employ practices that result in the preservation and enhancement of soil and water resources for today, and for generations to come. In 2018, farmers in the program reduced the risk of phosphorus delivery to Madison lakes and the Yahara River by 22,000 lbs. 

Research has shown that the conservation practices endorsed by Yahara Pride Farms help to reduce greenhouse gases.
