Conservation demonstration farm stays busy with no-till potatoes, high tunnel, biochar and worm juice

June 2, 2019by ncdea

NORTH DAKOTA, Burleigh County SCD – Though many fields in the area remain damp from the wet, cool spring, the staff at Menoken Farm are finding plenty of projects to keep them busy, like no-till planting potatoes, working in the high tunnel garden, experimenting with biochar and making worm juice.

Menoken Farm is a conservation demonstration farm in central North Dakota. The farm is owned by Burleigh County Soil Conservation District and receives additional funding through the North Dakota Department of Health Water Quality Division and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Made up of 10 fields, the farm focuses on soil health through five principles: soil armor, minimal soil disturbance, plant diversity, continual live plant/root and livestock integration.
