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, incorporating cover crops, and protecting our water ways.
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 wisdom, the experience
but it’s also about understanding and valuing animals
and the overall food production system
by not pumping our livestock with unnecessary antibiotics and/or growth hormones
using factory-style practices – confining animals
not allowing them 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
