Beneficial management practices, like cover cropping and rotational grazing, can help to build soil, sequester carbon, improve pastures and animal health, increase crop yields and create a diversified ecosystem where plants and animals can thrive.
At this event, we took a virtual tour of Fresh Valley Farms, a fourth-generation, certified organic farm in the North Okanagan selling nutrient-dense, pasture-raised, and certified organic meats and garlic throughout the North and Central Okanagan Valley. Steve Meggait and Annelise Grube-Cavers raise certified organic beef, chicken, turkey, and heritage pork on pasture. The farm uses all-natural, regenerative systems, with an emphasis on animal welfare.
