Agriculture is the backbone of Mountain View County's landscape and culture. With over 1,800 farms and ranches located on 3,800 square kms of rich fertile soil and lush grazing land, agriculture is our proud heritage and our vital link to the future.
Protecting and sustaining the natural resources that fuel the County's agriculture industry is a responsibility we take seriously. Funding and expertise is available to County farmers committed to pursuing sound environmental strategies that:
- Protect natural resources
- Protect endangered species
- Enhance biodiversity
- Enhance soil conservation
- Maintain riparian areas and enhance water quality
- Promote beneficial management practices
We offer several programs that support environmentally friendly farm practices.
