Berkeley County farm wins state conservation award

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A family-owned farm in Berkeley County is the 2012 West Virginia Conservation Farm of the Year.

B & G Orchards of Martinsburg is the third Eastern Panhandle farm to receive the award in the last five years.

Brothers Greg Butler and Bruce Butler Jr. operate the 403-acre farm. They tell The Journal ( ) that their conservation techniques include crop rotation and a smart sprayer that identifies where and where not to spray.

Greg Butler says the conservation practices will enable them to pass the farm down to the next generation.
