Earth Day 🌎 Everyday
Greetings from the farm!
Happy Earth Day! A day to celebrate God's beautiful creation and reflect upon our role in caring for it.
As farmers, we feel that we have a responsibility in stewarding or caring for our land, water and other natural resources, and even leaving them in better shape than how we found them.
Through the ways we farm our land and care for our animals we can...
Capture carbon from the atmosphere
Preserve our soils from erosion
Effectively use our naturally produced nutrients
Raise healthy, productive animals that require less energy and nutrients to grow
Keep the water in our streams and ponds clean
Plant trees and other native plants to provide food and habitat for wildlife
Raise crops that convert carbon dioxide into life giving oxygen
When I stop to reflect upon the impact our family farm can have on the environment, it is humbling. One thing we pledge is that we will continue to do our best to care for our natural resources.
