When farmers take special care of their land (and use practices like cover cropping, crop rotation, and composting), our streams and rivers run cleaner with fewer pesticides and less soil erosion.
Foods grown without pesticides aren’t just better for the world around us — they’re better for you, too!
Responsible farming keeps our drinking water clean, which benefits people like you and all of the wildlife that calls the Delaware River Watershed home!
Farms that use healthy and organic techniques keep good stuff in the soil and prevent chemicals that are bad from hurting the environment.
