StoneRiver is proud to annouce that it has been certified Salmon Safe for the 7th year in a row. This certification reflects a continuing comittment on our part to keep the Anderson Sub-watershed, the Bear Creek Watershed and the Rogue River Basin clean enough for native salmon to spawn and thrive. Our goal and comittment is to implement farming practices and developments that protect water quality, maintain watershed health and restore habitat. Salmon-Safe for winegrowing focuses on reducing vineyard runoff, water quality protection, and enhancement of native biodiversity on vineyard sites.
The Salmon-Safe Farm Certification Standards are a “whole-farm” certification process, including both farmed and non-farmed areas. The evaluation process for Salmon-Safe farm certification assesses how a farm’s operations directly and indirectly affect water quality and fish and wildlife habitat.
Salmon-Safe is a leading U.S. certifier of ecologically sustainable viticulture with more than 350 Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia vineyards transitioned to certification. Look for the Salmon-Safe logo in your travels. It is proudly displayed by our members.
