Are you curious about how you can add more diversity, habitat or conservation practices to your farmland? Join us this summer at Nutty Farmer Chestnuts to learn how Heath Stolee has integrated chestnut trees, prairie strips, a 16-acre Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) wetland – and more – on his Hardin County farm.

FB IMG 1649335149339Heath will share how he has integrated conservation with agriculture on his farm, and connected with organizations like Ducks Unlimited and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship to create habitat and diversity. Nutty Farmer Chestnuts is a veteran-owned family farm that grows chestnut trees and has integrated other conservation practices throughout the years.
