SILT Showcases returned for their second year, and landowners in three regions of the state had access to a free attorney and appraiser to ask questions about what permanent protection does to and for their land, what future farming would look like, whether acreages are eligible and more.

Sept. 20 is the last Showcase opportunity for landowners this year, hosted by Kathy Dice and Tom Wahl of Red Fern Farm in Wapello. Enjoy paw paws, chestnuts, persimmons and hear how Tom and Kathy are planning to protect their farm.

Special thanks to farmers Laura Krouse, Denise O’Brien, Will Laurentsen and Adrian White and land donor Steve Beaumont and all their helpers for their hard work to prepare their land and meals for so many guests!
