Go To Bats section
Sure, you need to be careful around bats carrying diseases, but attracting these animals to your farm can do wonders for your land’s overall health.
According to studies, bats are worth $3.7 billion to U.S. agriculture.
Build this wall-mounted bat house to foster bat habitats on the farm.
Go To Biodynamic Farming section
These plants are givers, adding nutrients and organic matter back to the soil to increase its fertility without chemicals.
There’s more in your soil than rotting plant matter—these insects and organisms are helping turn organic matter into a fertile growing medium for your farm.
On our herb farm, my husband and I grow using biodynamic principles—something our ancestors have done in one form or other since the start of agriculture.
