NORTH DAKOTA, Stutsman County SCD — Wilson Family Farm, owned by Jeremy and Sarah Wilson of Jamestown, has been selected as the recipients of the 2018 North Dakota Leopold Conservation Award®.
Their long history of working with the Stutsman County Soil Conservation District, includes holding public tours on conservation practices and cropping systems.
Their public outreach has extended to constructing a Heritage Room in their home. Complete with professional grade audio/video equipment, the space allows them to show visitors what happens on their farm throughout the year, and not just on the day of their visit. Business and political leaders, scientists and journalists from around the globe have visited their farm to learn the value of what they are doing.
For more than 20 years, the Wilsons have been outstanding spokespersons and advocates for conservation agriculture. Jeremy was selected as a “Soil Health Champion” by the National Soil Conservation Association of Conservation Districts.
