Essex County Demonstration Farm Annual Report – 2019

Monday, December 16, 2019

The Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA) and partners from the agricultural community established the Essex County Demonstration Farm (ECDF) at Holiday Beach Conservation Area in 1996 to demonstrate best management practices and innovative technologies that will conserve soil, maintain productivity, improve water quality and quantity, and illustrate that farming and the environment can coexist. In addition, it has incorporated natural habitat demonstrations that reflect the diversity of ecosystems in the Essex region. It provides a forum for the agricultural community to work together and communicate innovative techniques to each other and landowners.
