when it comes to sustainable agriculture,
what we’re really talkin’ about is ‘doing the right thing’.
from not harming the environment, to working with the environment….
to fostering an environment that welcomes beneficial insects and cover crops or weeds.
it’s also about our health and setting ourselves up for a healthy harvest
- free of chemicals and pesticides.
it’s about building community, appreciating the heritage, the knowledge, the experience
but it’s also about understanding and valuing the animals
and the overall food production system
by not pumping the livestock with antibiotics and/or excessive feed
using factory-style practices – leaving the animals restrained
not able to live out their natural tendencies
it’s about the long-term – the future …. about what we leave
to those that come to the land after us
it’s about respect
