Our number one goal is to improve the soil and its key features: biology, water infiltration, nutrient holding capacity, and overall productiveness. We accomplish this by implementing a diverse crop rotation, integrating livestock, balancing key mineral ratios and keeping roots growing for as long as possible.
A wheat plant needs about 18 minerals to grow grain. Throughout the growing season, we monitor the plant and its nutrient balance, applying key minerals that might be deficient therefore strengthening the plant to fend off diseases and insects and grow nutrient-dense grain. We don’t use fungicides nor do we desiccate the crop before we harvest.
We place a strong focus on soil health as healthy soil produces healthy plants. We believe this is the same for human health: if you care about the ingredients and sources of the food you put into your body, it ultimately creates a healthier human.
Take a look at some of our key practices in action below.
