Blake may recognize this photo. But, do we all know how helpful comfey can be?
If you would like to use less chemical fertilizer for your fruit trees or are tired of weeding around them, there’s a solution. Does watering your fruit trees less often sound good? Yep, there’s an answer for you. The solution to all these things is the humble, yet mighty plant known as comfrey. A very …

Is your farm or homestead also designed to foster the next generation of agrarians? Read how Gabe Brown is ensuring his farm will operate when he retires.
Too many farm operations have not prepared for the next generation to take over guest writer Gabe Brown A speaker at a recent conference posed this question: “How many of you have a son or daughter or relative taking over or planning to take over your operation?” Of the more than 160 in attendance, how …

Do you value physical work? Does the world around you value physical work? Industrialism's and technology's rush to eliminate physical work has had dire consequences.
Something I read the other day made me ponder about the nature of work. Or, more precisely, how many of us of Occidental cultures view work. I now know we have it wrong. In mankind’s rush from an agrarian society to an industrial one, increases in human productivity seemed to be gained through mechanization. In …

Knowing that God put us in a place can be reassuring. This word study helps us see God puts mankind in a place of total provision.
Oh the depth of meaning in the letters P – U – T. Sometimes three-letter words can mean so much and yet be overlooked. My case in point can be found in Genesis 2:15, which is part of the account of God creating a habitation for Adam and Eve. As many agrarians through time have …

Would you look at the world around you differently if you always kept in mind that God created it? What should our response be knowing that it was designed in a special way? Food for thought.

Read Gail Fuller's story about his efforts to transition his farm to a no-till cover crop operations. He had some ups and downs, but now he has things dialed in. Let's just say that Gail rocks!
Kansas farmer Gail Fuller, who farms near Emporia, experimented with no-till farming on and off during the 1980s. In the mid-1990s, frustrated by erosion and not getting the results he wanted, he attended a no-till conference where he learned about cover crops. When drought hit in 2000, he abandoned the cover cropping and saw even …

Have you considered the next generation and their income and future plans? Read how famous farmer Gabe Brown is doing it.

We are stewards of the Earth whether we believe it or not. Here's how I think the Bible teaches us about stewardship.
If we are satisfied that one of our roles as Christians is to steward the Earth – the place He created specifically for us – then the next logical question would be how. We can find our answer in many places in the Bible, but let us focus our attention to what Jesus Christ said …

This small affordable tool can help you know when to pick your fruits and veggies and can tell you useful information about your pastures. Read our article and learn whether a refractometer might be useful for your operation.
Have you considered use of an optical refractometer on your farm or homestead? As more holistic growers better understand the biochemistry of growing plants and soil, they are adopting use of this simple-to-use tool to help determine the health or nutritional value of their crops. A hand-held refractometer is a relatively inexpensive optical instrument that …

My latest blog post. Nope, I'm no luddite and neither are the thousands of others who practice eco-agriculture.
In my efforts to point people to various methodologies of eco-agriculture I often encounter those who dispute these approaches. One of the frequent refrains I hear, “we can’t go back to those old ways, we must use technology to feed the world.” There is a massive assumption on these people’s part that practicing agriculture in …
