The U.N. Environment Program estimates that no-till practices in the U.S. have helped avoid the emission of 241 million metric tons
of carbon dioxide since the 70s.
That's equal to
the annual
of about
50 million cars.

Agricultural practices are constantly evolving as farmers adapt to ever-changing political, social and physical environments. Efforts to quicken the pace of the Chesapeake Bay cleanup have resulted in a number of mandates to Pennsylvania farmers, and Haldeman Farms is happy to report that we are in compliance with
these conservation directives. Responsible stewardship results in healthy waterways,
which is why we have implemented nutrient management plans in conjunction with agricultural erosion and sedimentation controls like no-till and cover cropping. These practices keep soil and nutrients in the fields and out of the water. Progress has been made cleaning up the bay, but we still have a long way to go. Clean water initiatives will continue to remain a priority for Haldeman Farms in order to get the job done.
