SUSTAINING OUR ENVIRONMENT

As a 6th generation family farm, we are keenly aware of the importance of sustaining our environment. Without a healthy Mother Nature, our ability to do the one thing we love most – farm - would be compromised. Because of that, we make a constant, concerted effort to utilize responsible techniques and make farming choices that will help conserve our resources and keep our environment healthy for generations to come.

No-till farming

One important farming technique that we employ at Frahm Farmland is the practice of no-till. Our operation is 100% strip-till or no-till, a practice that we believe contributes greatly to our farm’s overall sustainability. No-till farming keeps plowing, disking or other tillage to a minimum, thus increasing the quantity of residue present in the field (such as wheat straw or corn stalks). This residue is key to protecting the soil from wind and rain erosion, as well as in increasing moisture retention and reducing our need for irrigation.


Involvement in the Kansas Water Office

Perhaps the most precious resource in Western Kansas is water, which is why we make it a priority to be at the forefront of water conservation policies and practices. We are heavily involved in the Kansas Water Office and consistently utilize our water resources in a conscientious, sustainable manner.

Conservation Stewardship Program

The Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) is a voluntary program facilitated by the USDA that encourages producers to address resource concerns in a comprehensive manner by undertaking additional conservation activities and improving, maintaining, and managing existing conservation activities. As a part of the CSP, Frahm Farmland has made a concerted effort to carefully preserve our precious natural resources.
