The soil is dry and depleted of nutrients to the extent that chemical nutrients have to be applied; livestock is often removed by physical or lethal means; native trees and plants are wiped clear to make room for crops and livestock operations. We decided to step away from the more commercial type of farms and farming methods and focus on methods that would work with nature and the landscape versus against it while also becoming more resilient and self-sufficient.

Some examples of methodology that we use or intend to use include the following:
