Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water announces supervisor election
Rockport — Sharon G. Chadwick is running for reelection for a three-year term, Jan 1, 2014 to Dec 31, 2016, as district supervisor for Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District.
Chadwick lives with her husband, Gerald, and daughter Shelby at BenEva Farm in Warren. The farm was started more than 65 years ago by her grandparents, Ben and Eva Barbour. Sharon and Jerry came home to run the farm with Sharon’s grandparents in 1988 and still operate as a conservation farm, raising commercial Black Angus beef for the freezer and feedlots, as well as selling hay. They have expanded nutrient and pasture management practices with a manure storage facility, a heavy use area, and, most recently, a livestock barn. In addition, Chadwick works in laboratory research at Lonza BioScience in Rockland and Jerry works for the Nobleboro Sanitation Department. She looks forward each year to judging the annual Poster Contest and helping out at the Conservation Fair and Plant Sale.
