This week, U.S. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack announced a major initiative advancing voluntary climate-smart farming and forestry practices. The USDA is inviting proposals from private sector stakeholders “interested in voluntarily collaborating to test wide-ranging ideas that sequester carbon and reduce GHG emissions on farms and working lands.” Vilsack credited the Farm Bureau-led Food and Ag Climate Alliance (FACA) recommendations when his agency formed the program.

Frank Gibbs, longtime Warren County farmer and almost iconic figure in the northern New Jersey dairy industry, died last Sunday. He was 82. Frank was active on the farm now managed by his son Brant until just a year ago. Among his many farming accomplishments, he was a leader among fellow dairymen in Warren County and as a Farm Bureau member who worked closely with the late Charlie Miller. Frank was a visionary in the farmland preservation program; his Allamuchy farm was among the first preserved farms in the state, dating back to 1986-88 according to his son. Services will be on Saturday, Sept. 18.
