Everyone's talking about regenerative farming these days. This "new model" is actually based on farming methods used by our grandparents. Regenerative farming refers to the practice of enhancing soil health without the use of agricultural chemicals and fertilizers; instead, livestock herds and flocks are moved over the pastures where the impact of their hooves and feet and their manure feed the soil. This practice results in greater diversity of flora and fauna above and below the soil. Improved soil health means more nutritious and a wider variety of grasses for our animals and ultimately greater nutrient density for us. By using regenerative farming practices we are able to improve the quality of our pastures without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. This is the future of farming happening right here in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region.
