By sowing clover seed and cultivating the native stands of clover in our fields, we eliminate erosion, reduce the soil temperature, increase soil moisture and add beneficial nitrogen to our soils.
Through the process of scouting, we monitor our pest populations. Pesticide applications are avoided until a certain threshold of insect pressure is reached.
Finally, through the use of soil and tissue sampling, we regularly check our soil fertility. In doing so, we know exactly what our soils contain and what they lack, allowing us to pinpoint fertilizer applications, reducing our overall inputs.
We take great pride in the beauty and productivity of our farm and strive each day to make it a little better for the next generation.
