DuPont’s Chesapeake Farms is 3,300-acre agricultural and wildlife management research, demonstration and education area located on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay near Chestertown, MD. The company uses the site to demonstrate, promote, and research products for all segments of the business. It serves as the flagship of environmental stewardship for crop protection by investigating, demonstrating, and promoting sustainable practices in agriculture and wildlife management, which is what the Environmental Respect Awards program is all about.
DuPont also uses the site to educate and entertain visitors. After getting an introduction and tour from DuPont’s Dr. Victoria Kleczewski, attendees of the 2016 ERA program were treated to a crab lunch next to the water.
