At Cylon Rolling Acres, regenerative agriculture practices, is at the foundation of everything we do on our farm.
Sometimes when we talk about regenerative farming practices, my husband laughs and says what are we doing that’s so special? It’s not that we take what we’re doing lightly, but it’s just always has been at the core of how we farm.
We don’t think of it as the “sustainability” checkbox for the farm. For us, it’s about continuing to improve our land and make it better for not just our farming practices, but the ecosystem above and below the ground (that would be the soil and its microbes).
We’re always striving to become better stewards of the land through involvement in our local grazing networks, local watershed groups, collaborating with NRCS and county conservation staff, as well as participating in conservation-minded pasture walks, field days, meetings, and conferences.
