Benefits of balanced ecosystems

We are always thinking about healthy balanced ecosystems, especially this time of year when we are hoping to keep pest pressure to a minimum.  We had our best year yet with the potatoes.  We kept a wide, wild swath of pasture around the potato patch; not only did we not have potato beetles to contend with, but our family of turkeys enjoyed hanging out.  Now we have rotated my cousin’s cattle through the upper part of the pasture, and they thoroughly enjoyed the waist high pasture.

Enjoyed reading this informative article about the benefits of hedgerows.
