Why do we care about Soil health? 

Your soil quality directly impacts your farm's productivity and sustainability. Healthy soil provides essential nutrients to crops, promotes root growth, and increases water retention. By caring for the health of your soil, you improve your crop yields, reduce the need for fertilizers, and enhance important soil properties like water infiltration. Investing in soil health not only benefits your farm in the short term but also ensures its long-term viability. So, whether you're a small-scale farmer or a large agricultural operation, it's important to prioritize the health of your soil for the success of your farm. 

How can you be a part of the summer 2024 Soil health tour? 

We can’t wait to get in the field and learn more about your soil with you! If you’re in one of these areas and would like to be included in the testing, fill out the form to RSVP.  

We will reasonably be able to travel within about an hour radius of each the locations listed above.

To receive your results, you must be present in the field with us, or come to the gathering at the end of the day. If you don’t see your location on this tour, don’t worry! We plan to do a soil tour each year after planting and again before harvest, so keep an eye out for Fall and Summer '25 dates. 

Soil health tests are provided on a first come first, first serve basis. We will run out of free tests.
