About the Practices
Fiddlers Greens Farm minimizes soil disturbance through reduced till and no tillage practices. To maximize living roots and keep the soil covered they practice the use of cover crops. In order to energize with diversity, they practice rotational grazing and utilizing organic fertilizer. This allows the promotion and stimulation of grass growth and spreading of organic matter.
