 cover crops in tennessee

 

One of the way we build soil is with cool season cover crops. This year we have tillage radishes, winter oats, winter wheat, rye, purple vetch and crimson clovers. This was done in the natural farming principles from the great book, The One Straw Revolution. We did not spray and chemicals, add chemical fertilizer, plow or anything else that would hurt or soil life. This is important too us at The Farmer’s Grove because the more life that is in our soil, the more nutrient dense our crops, nuts and fruits are.
