RIVER FRIENDLY FARMER: Shady Grove Farms is 2018 honoree

Staff Writer

In February, the Soil and Water Conservation District conducted its annual meeting.

There, Office Manager Nadean Lamle then awarded Mark, Austin and Kyle Johnson of Shady Grove Farms the River Friendly Farmer of Indiana Award.
Shady Grove Farms produces hogs and the family members are also grain farmers. Shady Grove was recognized due to the number of waterways and filter strips on their property which has helped reduce erosion and so reduced the amount of sediment traveling into water resources.
