Highlights of Selected Projects from the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Program

SARE projects are designed to improve agricultural systems from farm to consumer. Its findings may apply directly to farms, ranches, and rural communities across the nation. Here are examples of how some farmers and ranchers cooperating on SARE grants have realized new ways to make money—while protecting the environment and improving quality of life in their communities.
