How does an extra $1,000 sound to you? How could that help your farm? What would you spend the $1,000 on? Maybe a new piece of equipment for your farming operation?  Maybe a vacation to escape the long MN winter? You can spend it on anything that you want! How do you get this extra $1,000? It’s easy. Let me tell you how!

The Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program has a new endorsement that pays farmers $1,000. In order to get this, you have to get certified with the program. If you want more information on this valuable program, find it here.

Once you are on the website, click on ‘Certify Your Farm’. You will be contacted by a certification specialist who will walk you through the easy process of getting your farm certified. Once that is complete, you can ask about doing the Climate Smart Endorsement to get your $1,000.

I can honestly say that this program is a great tool for every farmer. Don’t wait, look it up today!
