Cows Come Home to $3.9 Million Investment in MOOMilk

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.

    Great Story. Most small, sustainable agricultural enterprises lack initial capital. We are paying for land out of our monthly paychecks, but cash flow has paid for my truck and trailer, tractor and equipment and purchased all our cattle. What I need now is an advertizing campain to push sales to the point of being able to go full time and retire from my day job. Right now, I have to work just to stay ahead on health insurance.

    Love this story. MOOMILK is the type of initiative that we should all get behind and broadcast to the world.

    I am learning a lot from your articles and the work you are doing. Thank you sooo much for inspiring me with your dedication and resolve to do the right thing for all of us!

    One Love

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very
    broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will
    try to get the hang of it!
