PCD obtained funding to provide FREE cover crop and pasture seed this spring. This funding is available to landowners working with our farm team to implement pasture rejuvenation and cover crop seeding using no-till and reduced tillage seeding methods.
To be eligible for funding, projects must be completed between July 14th, 2023 - June 30th, 2024. This will allow us to provide cost share for practices that sequester carbon in the ground and prevent nitrous oxide into the atmosphere. These practices include roofs for manure storage structures and cross fencing to facilitate rotational grazing.
Visit the Sustainable Farms and Fields webpage for more info and contact your local farm planner with your ideas. We would love to help fund your project!
The deadline for the application is June 1st. Get in touch ASAP if interested.

When you visit a farm, you encounter lots of animals! PCD’s Farm Team regularly visits farms to offer landowners the resources and assistance needed to better manage their land. From establishing fencing, implementing rotational grazing, or creating an efficient manure bin, these animals are getting a better home.
