It all starts with the soil.

Soil health is at the heart of organic agriculture, and current understanding of soil dynamics has validated and refined the practices developed by pioneers of the organic movement.

Organic farmers nourish soil naturally by using quality compost, cover crops, mulches, integrated crop and livestock production, and other considered practices.

Healthy soil supports optimum plant growth, has increased capacity to retain water and intercept runoff, resist erosion, filter out nutrients and pathogens, and suppress pests, weeds and diseases. We also know that healthy soils sequester carbon, helping to mitigate climate change.
