Future Harvest - Chesapeake Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture

Future Harvest - Chesapeake Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture

In partnership with the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA), Future Harvest is conducting an on-farm soil health benchmark study on Maryland farms. Using an array of physical, biological, and chemical attributes, combined with farmer's management records, this long-term research initiative aims to help farmers determine whether their soil health management practices are achieving the desired results. Pretty cool, eh? Participating farms receive:

· Free soil testing and report from Cornell Soil Health Testing Laboratory, a value of $340 per year, for at least three years;
· A soil health benchmark report, detailing soil health indicators from each field, including anonymous comparisons to peer farms;
· Opportunities to discuss and interpret soil test results with your peer group, through events and workshops.

All of our spots are filled for 2019, but we'd like to increase the number of participating farms significantly for next year, so be sure to come learn more about this and other exciting new soil health initiatives at our 2020 Conference: Farming for Our Soils, Livelihood, and Community!

Posted by another fine colleague, Beau Ramsburg. So important that we choose our food and our suppliers wisely.

Hey guys, Beau here.

I don't usually post much current events stuff here. I vastly prefer posts and pictures about the beautiful high quality meat we sell, most of which we grow from birth here on the farm, or source from other farms we know and trust. Meat that we work hard to process slowly, carefully, (and inefficiently).

But this is big picture stuff, and it's bullsh*t that it goes on without more public awareness.

Please, PLEASE buy your meat (and the rest of your food) from small farms and butchers. It doesn't have to be from us--this issue is more important than any one business. Know your farmer, know your butcher, and be educated about what you are buying, and the forces at work in the global food industry. Please don't let cost be the beginning and end of your meat (food) purchasing decisions. The way you vote with your food dollars influences far more than the food you put on your own table.

Thanks, as always, for your support.

--Beau
