What Is MAEAP?
What is the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP)? MAEAP is a confidential, helpful process of working with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to meet environmental laws. It is a comprehensive, voluntary, proactive program designed to reduce farmers’ legal and environmental risks through a three-phase process.
1) Education, 2) Farm-specific Risk Assessment, and 3) On-farm Verification that ensures the farmer has implemented environmentally sound practices. The program’s three systems (Farmstead, Cropping, and Livestock) each examine different aspects of the farm.
