Thanks to generous appropriations from the U.S. Congress and the West Virginia Legislature, Conservation Districts throughout West Virginia offer a variety of cost-share programs to assist farmers in the improvement of land, the enhancement of water and soil quality and the improvement of forage productivity.  These programs complement existing United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) programs and are designed to help farmers reach the goals of their conservation plans.  If you live in Brooke, Hancock, Marshall or Ohio County and would like more information, contact the Northern Panhandle Conservation District at (304) 238-1231.
