Eastern Shore farm-preservation group to be honored


October 14, 2005

Chesapeake Fields Institute, a nonprofit research and marketing group that tries to help farmers be profitable, will be honored tonight in New York City for programs in natural food certification and alternative agriculture.

The annual Harvest Awards are given by the Glynwood Center, which seeks to focus attention on preserving rural communities.

Chesapeake Fields was formed on the Eastern Shore five years ago to help farmers learn to be more profitable. The institute is being honored, in part, for developing products that are being marketed in the U.S. and abroad.
