New York’s longstanding AEM Award partnered with the Sand County Foundation’s nationally recognized Leopold Conservation Award® program in 2020 to honor a farm and its nominating Soil and Water Conservation District for their efforts to promote and protect the environment through the preservation of soil and water quality while helping to ensure farm viability for future generations. The finalists for the 2023 AEM-Leopold Conservation Award are Dygert Farms of Palatine Bridge in Montgomery County, Humbert Farms of Rose in Wayne County, and Tongore Farm of Olivebridge in Ulster County.
