Nova Scotia farmers work carefully to protect and conserve the environment; making environmentally conscious decisions on a daily basis. Nearly 80% of Nova Scotia farmers have developed an Environmental Farm Plan and The Environmental Farm Stewardship Award has been recognizing the sustainable stewardship efforts of those farmers for more than a decade.
Award recipients receive a cash prize of $2,000 and a custom painting of their homestead.
To be eligible for the award, a farm must:
Have a current Environmental Farm Plan
Have a current farm registration
Be a member of the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture
We encourage individuals and groups to nominate farms that are contributing positively to the environment. Nominees should be involved in developing the award application. Farm owners can nominate their own farm.
Fill out an application for your own farm or nominate another farm that is deserving.
