WCCD is now offering soil sampling services for landowners/farmers in Worcester County

This is the perfect time for soil sampling. Did you know we offer soil sampling services? Our staff will come out to your property to take soil samples for all uses – lawn, garden, pasture, orchard, you name it! We will dry the samples and mail them to the Soil Testing Lab at UMass. We can also offer assistance in interpreting the results! To learn more about this program and schedule an appointment, contact Kate Gervais-  kate.gervais@ma.usda.gov
