Field of Dreams
Every year I try to incorporate something into our farm that will make it better and more sustainable. This year I decided to put my money where my mouth is and put some of our row crop field into CRP pollinator habitat. The folks at the FSA office were very helpful in helping me wade through the paperwork. In all I ordered seed for about 14 acres. 2 acres are in CRP the balance will be done without assistance. Some of the plantings include the ditches along the road on two sides of our property, several pockets of pollinator forage, and there is 8 acres of pasture I am preparing to plant the remainder of the seed. In the photo above you may only see a field with the residuals of last year’s corn or some seeds sprouting, but what I see is an optimistic view of the future.
