The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) is a voluntary, whole farm, self-assessment tool that helps producers identify their environmental risks and develop plans to mitigate identified risks. We are working together with farmers committed to environmental stewardship.
Red Deer County is helping producers access funding from the CAP programs dealing with agriculture and the environment (the Farm Water Supply Program and the Environmental Stewardship and Climate Change - Producer Program).
Depending on the nature of your operation and what projects you want to do, farms and ranches could be eligible for thousands of dollars. The County assists producers in doing the planning work that is required to access these programs. This includes developing and updating Long Term Water Management Plans, Environmental Farm Plans, and CAP Work Plans.
