At Growing Country, we believe that a farming system that is viable and respects nature is a good system. Unfortunately, mainstream agriculture has looked upon many of these systems and the people who practice them as agriculture's fringe element, where sustainability and stewardship came at the price of productivity and profits. How the world has changed! Today, these farming systems are being increasingly embraced by the mainstream and are moving firmly into the centre of the agriculture stage. They are seen as the solutions to many of humankind's problems, from world-wide soil degradation to the loss of nutrient density in our foods. And, thanks to the rise of supportive technologies and communities, and growing consumer awareness and demand, these systems are becoming profitable too. So, whether you're thinking about embracing an entire system or implementing methods from a number of them, you'll find the information and inspiration you need right here.
