Branch Honey Farm is a proud participant in the USDA’s Conservation Technical Assistance (CTA) program. Through CTA, the Natural Resources Conservation Service partners with farmers to promote practices that deliver improved water and air quality, increased soil health and reduced soil erosion, improved or created wildlife habitat, and mitigation against drought and increasing weather volatility.
Remember the old joke “I’m from the government, I’m here to help you.” These people actually do! The Talbot County-based USDA professionals have been invaluable in getting our small farm up and running. They’re trusted partners, and we’re proud to be working with them.

They believe that "access to waterways fuels environmental stewardship; inclusion of diverse communities is essential to long term success; and diverse representation in our membership, staff, and board makes us stronger."
