Agriculture

With over 500 farming operations totaling nearly 100,000 acres, agriculture is an important part of the local economy and rural landscape of Fulton County.  The Fulton County Conservation District is dedicated to providing educational, technical and financial assistance to our farmers through the following programs:

Pennsylvania has environmental regulations for agricultural activities.  There are regulations for:

  • Erosion and sediment pollution control
  • Manure management 

 

These are regulations that all agricultural operations, regardless of size, must comply with.  Ask yourself... Is my farming operation in compliance with state regulations?
