A Sustainable Approach to Agriculture

RIVER FRIENDLY FARMING

The River Friendly Farm Certification addresses a wide range of environmental concerns.  The practices implemented by producers ensure food is produced in a manner that promotes a healthy ecosystem and doesn't degrade the long-term productivity of the land. ​

HERE HOW RIVER FRIENDLY FARMING PROTECTS OUR EARTH:

Cleaner Water

River Friendly Farms implement practices that limit pollution by excess nutrients, bacteria, and pesticides. 

 

Their actions protect drinking water for all the people living downsteam. 

Healthier Soil

In a world where 40% of farmland is suffering from significant degradation, River Friendly Farms build soil organic matter and protect topsoil from erosion.

 

These actions ensure soil stays healthy and productive for years to come. 

Wildlife Habitat

River Friendly farms encourage natural pest suppression and pollinators. 

 

They also create diverse stream-side habitats and ensure a healthy ecosystem for native fish, birds, and insects. 

Climate Resilience 

Land management is the second largest contributor to carbon dioxide emissions on planet earth. 

 

River Friendly Farming practices can reverse carbon emissions by storing billions of tons of carbon in soils in a natural process called soil carbon sequestration.
