The Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District offers numerous services to agricultural operations, both large and small. We offer conservation and nutrient management planning, financial assistance (Cost-Share and Tax-Credit) for conservation practices, seminars on natural resource and agricultural topics, etc. We are non-regulatory and all of our services are provided at no cost to the landowner.
Traditional Agriculture refers to growing crops, such as hay, soybeans, corn, and specialty crops (e.g. tomatoes), or raising livestock such as beef cows, chickens, sheep, goats, etc. (i.e. any animal that produces a product).
We have several financial assistance practices available for farmers as part of our Virginia Agricultural Best Management Practices Cost-Share Program.
Horse farms are very prominent in Prince William County. We provide similar services as we do with traditional agriculture.
As small ruminants are becoming more popular in Prince William County, we have created a list of resources to help new (and current) farmers.
