What do hoop houses, tree plantings and grazing infrastructure all have in common? They can all be funded in part through working lands conservation programs like the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP). Join Chad and Katie Hensley to learn how they’ve funded a range projects on their diverse Decatur County cut flower, produce and grass-fed heritage beef farm.
