“Conserve the dirt!” exclaimed David Kramer with a grin.

He and his brother Steven have been farming in Allen and Woodson counties since 1973, and have just been honored with the Banker’s Award for Soil Conservation.

“And it ain’t never going to be done,” David and Steven’s mother told them, “because conservation is an ongoing project.”
