Woolf Farm Project Details
Thu Mar 19, 2009
A milking operation with 80 cows on 53 acres of land, the Berks County Conservation District initially approached the landowner with concerns about the manure handling on the property. The Woolf’s were extremely receptive to both short-term remediation measures as well as long term considerations, resulting in a success story that highlights what can be accomplished when multiple agencies work together.

The success of this agricultural BMP project can best be described in the words of Kim Fies at the Berks County Conservation District: “The ‘before’ and ‘after’ on this operation is an amazing testament to what can be accomplished by multiple agencies working together and taking small steps, showing patience, and eventually getting to the goal of eliminating negative environmental impacts.”
