Video: upstream farmers learn about the lower Chesapeake through CBF program

Posted

What happens when a group of farmers from far upstream meet the Chesapeake Bay?

They kiss fish, bait crab pots, and return home more enthusiastic than ever to promote the farm conservation practices needed to restore the Bay's waterways and protect the livelihoods of watermen and others who depend on it.

Take a moment and watch this short Chesapeake Bay Foundation video of upstream farmers in the lower Chesapeake on a recent visit to Port Isobel and Tangier Island which includes remarks by Mayor James “Ooker” Eskiridge.

CBF has been leading “Farmers to the Bay” trips for more than a decade, building bridges between farmers from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia and watermen, cementing a lasting connection with the waters of the Chesapeake.
