The Blanchard River Demonstration Farms Network (BRDFN) is a joint partnership between U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Services and the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. BRDFN is a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative project designed to showcase and demonstrate leading edge conservation practices to improve Great Lakes water quality.
The agreement between USDA and Ohio Farm Bureau is a five-year, $1 million project. OFBF collaborated with stakeholders in Hardin and Hancock counties, as well as NRCS and other partners, in identifying the farms and farmers who are participating in the demonstration sites.Heel Wedding Party Satin Ankle Blush High Bow ERIJUNOR Dance Shoes Evening Strap Women zFAgW0E

- Establish an efficient mechanism to share this technology and information with farmers, agribusiness, conservation agencies and the public.
- Create opportunities for others to test their research, provide technical assistance and develop program implementation.
- Share information and lessons learned from the Blanchard River Watershed throughout the Western Lake Erie Basin.
