Lancaster Farmland Trust — Accreditation, Stewardship and Ice Cream



Continuing my conversation with Karen Martynick, Executive Director, and Jeff Swinehart, Deputy Director of Lancaster Farmland Trust.

You will hear more details about their experience with accreditation, and how they were able to successfully become accredited at the same time they were successfully completing their ambitious strategic plan.  They also discuss how stewardship has become an increasingly important part of their workplan.

Last, but not least, we discuss their connection to Turkey Hill Dairy.  Turkey Hill promotes the land trust through their line of all natural ice cream, with the trust’s logo on display as well as a portion of the proceeds.

Listen in and then check out their website for more information.

You can also learn more about accreditation and the Land Trust Accreditation Commission.

Learn more about their connection to Turkey Hill Dairy.

Note: A special note of thanks to Karen and Jeff for showing me around Lancaster County, and to the people of Turkey Hill Dairy, both for their support of the trust, and for taking the time to meet with me.
