why sustainable

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
