The Clean Water Farm Award Program recognizes Pennsylvania farmers whose exemplary farm management practices result in improved local and downstream water quality.

Financial support for this award is provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection through the Chesapeake Bay Regulatory and Accountability Program and the Pennsylvania Chesapeake Bay Education Office (administered by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc.).

Nominations must be received at the PACD office no later than April 30. 

This award was formerly limited to farms in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Now, the award has been expanded to include the entire state.
