New! Increase profitability, efficiency, soil health (and more) on your small farm.
The Organic No-Till Farming Revolution is the comprehensive farmer-developed roadmap showing how no-till lowers barriers to starting a small farm, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, increases efficiency and profitability, and promotes soil health. This hands-on manual offers:
• Why roller-crimper no-till methods don't work for most small farms • A decision-making framework for the four no-till methods: occulation, solarization, organic mulches grown in place, and applied to beds • Ideas for starting a no-till farm or transitioning a working farm • A list of tools, supplies, and sources.
This is the only manual of its kind, specifically written for natural and small-scale farmers who wish to expand or explore chemical-free, regenerative farming methods.
Andrew Mefferd spent seven years in the research department at Johnny's Selected Seeds, traveling around the world to consult with researchers and farmers on the best practices in greenhouse growing. He put what he learned to use on his own farm in Maine. He is now the editor and publisher of Growing for Market magazine. Previously, he worked on farms in six states across the United States before starting his own farm.
