Farming Practices

Organic, Other

Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.

I am hoping to establish a system in agroforestry with silvopasture and permaculture. A system that integrates orchard, livestock and forage. However, beginning with an organic farm and greenhouse is a good place to start. My dreams are big but I know to start small and work my way up.

Elaborate on the farming practices you plan on using.

Organic farming and permaculture with perennial crops and livestock to enhance and improve soil health and increase levels of topsoil through regenerative practices. A restorative agriculture is what I'm most interested in.
