Thought of the Week


“Our fields are never bare.
When you use a shovel to look at the soil in our fields, it’s like a geological dig.
Much of it hasn’t been turned over in 40 years.  It has a thick duff layer to prevent erosion and is full of earthworms and all kinds of soil life.”

-John Aeschliman, No-till Farmer
