Farm & Ranch Environmental Services

Farmed areas – both on land and in the water – provide important habitats for many wild plants and animals.

When farming operations are sustainably managed, they can help preserve and restore critical habitats, protect watersheds, and improve soil health and water quality. But when practiced without care, farming presents the greatest threat to species and ecosystems.

Purchasing Farm and Ranch Land Tips

When purchasing a farm and ranch property you should always consider past and present oil & gas exploration and production.

Purchasing Farm and Ranch include the following issues:

Past use of Pesticides, Herbicides and fertilizers can present threats to surface water, ground water and also have exposure risks to livestock, humans, crops, forestry and vegetation.

Past and current uses of petroleum fuel and lubricant which is used to fuel and maintain agriculture equipment can also produce hazardous waste that can potentially impact human health and the environment.
