I follow a Facebook group dedicated to regenerative agriculture, and recently I read through responses to a question about farming without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. I was surprised when there were about a dozen farms or farmers who claimed to use no pesticides or synthetic fertilizers of any kind, and still grow enough to feed themselves or even enough to turn a small profit.
I’m curious to know if anyone in ECHO Community can corroborate such claims. Have you achieved good yields or a small profit from farming without pesticides or synthetic fertilizers? Do you know of anyone who is doing so?
Any links or contact information to folks doing this are appreciated! : )
