Snohomish Conservation District has certified farm planners who will visit your farm for free and offer suggestions based on the goals you have for your property. In some cases, the District may even be able to help cover the cost of improvements to your farm.
Whether you have livestock, crops, horses or something in between we can help with the following:
- mud and manure
- off-stream watering
- heavy use areas
- nutrients and fertilizing
- and more!
