Michigan Farm Bureau and county Farm Bureaus statewide support the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program, more commonly known as MAEAP. The voluntary program helps farmers practice environmental stewardship to proactively eliminate and minimize environmental risks.
Visit the official MAEAP website for complete details about the innovative and nationally recognized program that offers farmers many benefits.
The MAEAP toolkit is a resource for county Farm Bureaus and conservation districts that includes promotional, recognition, and event sponsorship resources. The toolkit is designed to reduce the stress and time devoted to encouraging local farmers to become MAEAP verified, recognizing recently verified farmers, and coordinating MAEAP educational meetings.
Farm Bureau hopes the toolkit will serve as a valuable resource to make MAEAP verification goals a reality. Items available for download:
