Tillage is something everyone thinks as a necessary step in farming. That is soooo not true! Especially if you have sandy loam soil. Tillage is the equivalent to an earthquake, hurricane, and tornado happening at once to soil organisms. Tillage is the main cause of carbon dioxide pollution in agriculture. We need to think outside the box in our agricultural systems and grow better. No till is extremely doable and it helps humanity go one step further to true sustainability! #organicfarming#urbanfarming#sustainablefarming#notill#bakersfield#youngfarmers#marketgarden#permaculture

Caught up with Restoration Acres today as they prepped for their incoming laying hens. 300 Black Australorp chicks soon filled the new bedding. “..they’re the best laying hen we’ve raised.. docile, calm, smart, dual purpose so they grow out to a nice meaty bird..”
