Do you grow cover crops or small grains? Check out our 2022 Cost-Share programs today!
Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Practical Farmers is in its seventh year offering cost-share and technical assistance for those who are seeding fall cover crops.
You can receive $10 per acre on up to 200 acres or 10% of your farmed acres (whichever is larger) and $5 per acre on everything above that. There are no requirements on the species or seeding method used.
Hear from Keith Gorham as he shares his experiences growing and feeding small grains to his livestock. Keith and his family have been farming regeneratively since 2016 and in the fall of 2016 they started growing small grains like wheat, rye and triticale for on-farm use. They raise cattle, pigs and some hobby goats and chickens. They also plant diverse cover crop mixes that the cattle graze in the fall and spring. Learn more about Keith’s operation and how he uses small grains as feed for his cattle and pigs.
