Why? Because if you look to the right of the tractor you can see birds. They are moving out of the way as Ramon passes by with the tractor. They then search the newly exposed soil for earth worms. Earthworms are very important because they indicate that the soil is alive and vibrant. All the work with cover crops, compost, pasture and chickens has paid off. We are restoring our soil to its natural fertility. Our work will never be finished but a farmers duty is to leave it in a better state than he found it for the next steward.
