ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Our sole purpose is to make it easier for you—the non-operator land owner (NOLO) to find sound information and advice on soil health and conservation programs and practices.

WHO IS A NOLO?

NOLOs may be men or women, and young, old, or middle aged. 
They may live on their land or hundreds of miles away. They may 
or may not have a farming background. While they may have many 
differences, the one thing they have in common is they own land, but do not farm it themselves.

WHY THE INTEREST IN WORKING WITH NOLOS?

Conservation districts and the NRCS believe landowners, whether they farm the land themselves or rent it to tenants, stand to gain the most from building soil health and conserving resources on their farm and ranch land over the long haul. While much of the day to day work the NRCS and conservation districts perform is with tenants who operate the land, we also want to help landowners sustain profits and ensure one of your most important assets–your land–will be productive for years and generations to come.
