Farm tour focuses on healthy soil by eliminating synthetic fertilizers

October 28, 2019by ncdea

COLORADO, Mesa CD – Mark Cremeens dug his shovel into the pasture at his Grand Junction ranch, pulling up a mound of grass and soil for the group crowded around him to see. The group was mostly fellow farmers and ranchers on a farm tour Friday morning organized by the Mesa Conservation District.

Conservation District treasurer Rob Breeden said he was happy to see farmers from all over the Western Slope participate in the farm tours. The group visited a vegetable farm and an orchard in addition to Cremeens’ ranch.

“It’s great to do some on the ground, not from a book education,” Breeden said. “Real life, real world experience and hear the challenges people go through.”
