Go Behind the Plate
The Nature Conservancy created the Nature's Plate Awards to showcase the importance of sustainably sourced ingredients and the role consumers, chefs and food suppliers play in supporting food we can all feel good about. The Conservancy is working closely with many of the people who supply our food—farmers, ranchers, winemakers, and fishermen— proving you can produce high-quality food in environmentally friendly ways. Learn about our bird-friendly agriculture, sustainable fishing, grass-fed beef and boutique farming projects.
