Truzt organic farms are built on the principles of regenerative agriculture.  It is based on the idea that healthy soil is the foundation of a healthy ecosystem and that, by nurturing the soil, we can improve the overall health and productivity of our farms and gardens.

There are several key practices that are central to our farm agriculture:

  1. Cover cropping: This involves planting a variety of crops between main crop seasons to protect the soil and improve its fertility. Cover crops can help to prevent erosion, fix nitrogen in the soil, and add organic matter.
  2. Crop rotation: This involves growing different types of crops in a specific order over time. This can help to improve soil fertility, reduce pests and diseases, and prevent soil depletion.
  3. Composting: This involves adding organic matter to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Compost can be made from a variety of materials, including food waste, yard waste, and animal manure.
  4. Reduced tillage: This involves minimizing the amount of soil disturbance during planting and cultivation. Reduced tillage can help to preserve soil structure and improve water retention.
  5. Integrating animals: This involves incorporating animals, such as cows or chickens, into the farming system. The animals can provide natural fertilizers, help to control pests and weeds, and improve soil structure through their grazing and foraging.

We believe regenerative agriculture has the potential to improve soil health, increase crop yields, and reduce the need for synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. It can also help to mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon in the soil and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from industrial agriculture.
