The Chester County Conservation District currently owns a horse-drawn corn planter and a no-till drill. Our equipment is rented to our cooperators on a first-come first-serve basis. Use of the no-till equipment enables the District to work with our cooperating landowners to establish new conservation practices on their lands.
