Cecil County, Maryland
The Cecil Soil Conservation District congratulates Albeck Farms as the
2019 Outstanding Cooperator of the Year.
Albeck Farms became a cooperator with the Cecil Soil Conservation District in 1959. Conservation efforts began with the installation of the first waste treatment lagoon in Maryland. Efforts continued with the planting of a riparian buffer along with over 3,000 ft of fence to exclude livestock from the stream. Additional BMPs include diversions, waterways, tile drainage, and wildlife areas. Agronomic BMP’s such as the annual use of cover crops, contour farming, and nutriment management have been used to enhance and preserve the soil and improve water quality. Albeck Farms continues with the legacy of commitment to the conservation and preservation of their scenic farm in Cecil County.
The Cecil Soil Conservation District proudly recognizes Albeck Farms, for being committed to the sustainability of their family farm with the wise use and conservation of the natural resources.
