Muskingum has a diverse agricultural community. The 2017 Census of Agriculture listed 1,263 farms, 189,022 acres in those farms over $70 Million dollars in market value of products sold. The Muskingum Soil and Water Conservation District (MSWCD) strives to work with all producers of agricultural products to provide technical assistance to apply conservation on their land.
The MSWCD works with landowners and land-users to find solutions to natural resource issues that are both economically viable and environmentally sustainable. We work with people to help meet their goals, no matter how large or small.
