Since 1999, key conservation and agricultural organizations have sponsored the River Friendly Farmer (RFF) Program. The statewide initiative recognizes farmers, who through good production management practices helps keep Indiana’s rivers, lakes and streams clean.
Annually, each county Soil and Water Conservation District may nominate up to two farmers who do an outstanding job of protecting their rivers, lakes and streams through their every day conservation management practices on the farm. Watershed organizations also may nominate farmers for the award by submitting an application to a county SWCD.
The River Friendly Farmers Awards Ceremony originally scheduled at the Indiana State Fairgrounds has been cancelled due to the cancellation of the Indiana State Fair. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please contact the local Soil and Water Conservation District
regarding any ceremony details.
