MAEAP Recognition is:

This comprehensive, voluntary, proactive program is designed to reduce farmers' legal and environmental risks through a three-phase process:

1.) Education

2.) Farm-specific assessment

3.) On-site farm verification

The on-farm verification ensures the farmer has implemented environmentally sound practices.

The program's four systems (Cropping, Farmstead, Livestock, and Forest, Wetlands and Habitat) each examine different aspects of the farm.  After becoming MAEAP verified, a farm can display a MAEAP sign signifying that MAEAP partners recognize the farm is environmentally assured.  Visit the MAEAP website.
