Mapping Your Farm


Mapping your farm can be a great way to visualize where risks exist. A map can be drawn by hand, on the computer, or pulled from Google Maps. It can be zoomed out of the entire property or zoomed in to a specific area of your farm, like your packhouse or wash station. Consider:

  • current land use nearby
  • previous land use (including your farm and your neighbors’ land)
  • topography
  • wind patterns
  • location of water sources
  • septic tanks and sewage systems
  • packing areas and animals
  • driving routes
  • wildlife and domesticated animal interaction
  • wildlife movement patterns
  • animal population density
  • fecal contamination in production areas

Below are a few examples of farm maps.
