Caring for the Earth — No-Till Farming
The Earth where we live is such a beautiful place. My family and I truly appreciate being outside and enjoying the nature around us. We feel it is very important to do our part to take care of the earth and help preserve it. One way we do this is no-till farming. It is exactly as it sounds. The planter injects the seeds directly into the ground so there is no need to till the land first. This method allows us to protect our earth and resources by using less fuel. It also increases the amount of water and nutrients in the soil, and helps protect against erosion.
