The Riparian Buffer

Mud College Farmstead has partnered with USDA/NRCS/FSA to install and main a 6.5 acre buffer — that’s 975 trees and shrubs!  We are looking forward to seeing the buffer mature, with healthy trees.  NRCS’ Kris Goetz expects that the trees will shade out grasses from the small stream (now “a ditch”) and this will become a healthy habitat for fish and other wildlife.
