Evansville, IN – Out of 61,000 farms in the state of Indiana, two farms in Vanderburgh stood out from the crowd last week for the work they do to protect Indiana’s natural resources.Kent and Daniel Lamey were among 48 farmers who received the River-Friendly Farmer award from the Indiana Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (IASWCD) last Wednesday, August 19th, 2015 at the Indiana State Fair. The Vanderburgh Soil and Water Conservation District nominated Kent and Daniel Lamey for the award based upon their farm management practices that protect Indiana’s rivers, lakes, and streams.  At the ceremony to congratulate the farmers were Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann, Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Ted McKinney, President of Indiana Farm Bureau Don Villwock, State Conservationist Jane Hardisty, and IASWCD President Mike Starkey, among other leaders from the Indiana Conservation Partnership.  The River-Friendly Farmer Award has been presented by the IASWCD and sponsored by the ninety-two local Soil and Water Conservation Districts, and Indiana Farm Bureau, Inc. since 2000.
