Farms in pilot project achieve positive results on national sustainability metrics

Lafayette Ag Stewardship Alliance (LASA) is partnering with Farmers for Sustainable Food and a diverse group of public and private organizations on a unique sustainability initiative in southwestern Wisconsin. The partners developed a first-of-its-kind framework for farm-level sustainability projects that helps farmers determine what conservation practices are most effective for their individual farms, and document the environmental and financial effects. The framework is being applied in a pilot project involving LASA farmers and others in the dairy food supply chain.
