As stewards, I believe in treating our soil with respect. As an agronomist and soil scientist, I find joy in advising methods and products that result in healthy crops, healthy fruit
and eventually healthy animals and people. By using scientifically proven methods and common sense my aim is to help grow high yielding, nutrient dense agricultural products with value.
