Lake County, Ohio - Soil & Water Conservation District

Agriculture

    For over 60 years, soil and water districts have been working with the agriculture industry to conserve and protect soil resources.  Lake SWCD continues that tradition by providing technical advice and assistance for owners of agricultural lands, and promoting local agricultural-based businesses.  We are also working to protect the unique vineyard growing region of Northeast Ohio through education, conservation and sustainability of the industry.

    Nurseries and produce farms account for much of the agricultural land use in Lake County, which is consistently one of the highest ranked counties in Ohio in terms of income from agriculture.  Vineyards and wine grapes are a common sight along the Grand River.
