Agricultural Conservation at Red Tail Farm

“Urban Farming / Agricultural Conservation”

“Ag conservationist Lynette Black had the unique opportunity to work with one “urban” cowboy whose farm is located in the middle of Goshen.

This producer’s goal is to operate a farm with conservation and sustainability as his guide. Black has helped him secure grant funding to install exclusion fencing for rotational grazing. They are in the process of installing an alternative watering system collecting rain water from the barn into a large cistern. Finally, Black will assist this urban farmer with a wetland restoration.”
