Specialty crops and other income-producing trees and shrubs can create important diversity for your farm and income. Specialty crops can spread out your farm work load and add revenue in currently down seasons by generating additional income from timber, nuts and fruit. In addition, these plantings naturally create conservation benefits like erosion control, stormwater filtration, wildlife habitat, lend natural beauty and help protect livestock with cooling shade and protection from wind.
