The Ohio Conservation Farm Family Awards program recognizes farmers who are doing an outstanding
job of protecting and conserving soil, water and related natural resources on the land they farm.
Coordinated by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, Division of Soil and Water Conservation and cosponsored
by Ohio Farmer magazine and the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, the program emphasizes the
application of technically sound, innovative and cost‐effective conservation practices and encourages the
sharing of this information with other farmers and the general public
Five area finalists are selected from around Ohio. All five finalists will be recognized as winners of the Ohio
Conservation Farm Family Award at a ceremony during the Farm Science Review in September and will be
featured in the September issue of Ohio Farmer magazine. The winners will also receive a $400 check
courtesy of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. Entry Deadline is June 13.
