Daniel Baldwin partnered with White & Associates Insurance in 2021 to form Baldwin Conservation Group, LLC. Our partnership exists to advise and assist landowners and farm operators with the selection of USDA conservation enhancement practices. We are available to manage USDA application processes, re-enrollments, grants, and necessary contract record keeping.
With 70 million acres of land enrolled in the Conservation Stewardship Program, CSP, sustainable agriculture is an important tool for producers to boost existing conservation practices through “enhancements”. From decreasing erosion and runoff, planting cover crops to increasing crop yields and building wildlife habitat, CSP offers a pathway for your land.
The Environmental Quality Program, EQIP, provides financial and technical resources to implement practices through 3-year contracts. EQIP focuses on natural resources concerns and environmental benefits by implementing structural, vegetative, and management practices. Need improved irrigation efficiency? Utilize EQIP to install Underground Irrigation Pipeline.
Not looking for programs within the NRCS? BCG can assist with grant applications. Need a grain dryer upgrade, solar panels? Give us a shout, and we will send a checklist of information that we need to write and submit your application.
