Farmers for Sustainable Food: Farmer proves it’s never too late to learn new practices

Published on 10 April 2023 at 17:35

Farmers for Sustainable Food (FSF) is a non-profit organization that promotes sustainable farming practices. Recently, they shared the inspiring story of a midwestern farmer who proved that it's never too late to learn new practices. Midwestern farmers are known for their stubbornness, and for good reason - they have been the ones that have lost out the most with more recent policy and big ag. However, this farmer decided to switch to more sustainable practices, with the support of FSF and other organizations. He learned about cover cropping, reduced tillage, and other techniques to improve soil health and reduce inputs. Today, he is reaping the benefits of his new practices, including increased yields and better soil quality. This story is a testament to the power of education and collaboration in creating a more sustainable food system. We all have the power to make a positive impact, no matter how long we've been farming or how set in our ways we may feel. Let's continue to learn, grow, and work together towards a more sustainable future for agriculture.
