A Non-GMO Feed Hub For Kansas

Real Billions and Real Trillions

While I was searching for images of life in the soil, I came upon the following on Sweet Bay Farm’s website (see above). They’re working to restore soils depleted by decades of monoculture—the continual cultivation of a single crop, in this case tobacco—so this picture of several earthworm tunnels in a clod does not yet suggest anything teeming.

A Conversation With Jeff Moyer

Jeff, before we begin, I want to thank you for the images of the jars of water, one with soil rich in organic matter and one with the dissolved murkiness of soil that is deficient in carbon. Ever since you showed those images during a public talk a decade or so ago, the comparison has stuck with me.

Colorado Soil Systems Receives 0% Loan

In 2016, Colorado Soil Systems received a $15,000 zero-percent loan from the 2Forks Club. This loan allowed us to establish a fruit-tree rootstock nursery to preserve indigenous trees that grow in the valley; purchase irrigation supplies, fencing, and soil amendments; and embark on a vegetable- and flower- production operation.

    A great big THANK YOU to all the Bauman family, again I say all the family, for helping feed my animals non GMO feed. What a blessing your hard working family is to the local farmers.

    I would love to buy non-gmo wheat flour for my baking. I don’t think I am the only baker out there who feels this way. A nice hard winter wheat. All the very best for your success!

    I am so pleased that this project was the winner of the funding.
    I live in the Canadian go canola belt and understand the situation the “conventional” farmers are in.
    I knew right away these people were the real thing and the best example to everyone who learned of their goals and needs, as well as those around them. Ethical primary producers!

    I would love to be able to buy feed for my animals that does not include GM products. I don’t think people realize how bad they are. Monsanto et al has literally bought the politicians. Mike Pompeo from Kansas is the biggest sponsor of the DARK bill. Keep up the good work. Hope to hear that the product is available to Kansas soon.
