I went to Washington D.C. the last week of June to talk to our Natural Resources Conservation Services partners about On Pasture and its future. We had a great meeting, where I got to meet the new Chief, Matt Lohr. He is a fellow farmer from Virginia and so he knows a lot about the challenges farmers and ranchers face and the importance of programs that help us all be more successful.

As you can see, I dressed up for the meeting. But – anything for you guys – and keeping On Pasture online!

I’m now working on a grant application for the next step in On Pasture’s future. If you’d like to help, I’d love to hear from you about how On Pasture has helped you as a farmer, rancher, NRCS staffer, or agriculture professional. One thing our partners would really like to know is how many of you have contacted your local NRCS office to get technical or financial assistance. If that includes you, send me a note!

Another thing that would really help would be showing the level of commitment readers have to On Pasture. You can show your commitment by signing up today to send in monthly support that we can use as match for grants. Without you, I really can’t keep on keeping on.

You know I hate asking for help. But I figure we’re all in this together, and if I don’t ask, then I won’t be able to keep finding and writing articles that make your life better.

Thanks for reading and for your support!


P.S. This is the Knapp Memorial Arch that is in front of the NRCS building. It is in recognition of the public service of Seaman A. Knapp in extension for the Department of Agriculture from 1898 to 1911. I liked it because I haven’t seen very many arches built in honor of agriculture or the people who serve farmers and ranchers.
