STEVENS – PA Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Northeast Regional Administrator Cosmo Servidio signed a five-year Letter of Understanding formalizing a joint commitment to supporting measures to sustain healthy farms, clean water, and food security. Officials signed the agreement at Worth the Wait Farms in Stevens, Lancaster County. The Chris Landis farm was chosen because of conservation measures implemented on their seventh-generation dairy farm. Lancaster Conservation District Manager Chris Thompson says farms like this have worked hard to protect the environment. The agreement expands activities to prioritize funding, coordinate regulatory programs, recognize farmers for environmental stewardship, and enhance dialogue with the agricultural community.
