Deep Roots Valley-150 Acre farm in transition

Will and Kelly Smith moved onto the family farm three years ago. Since then they have been helping to transition the 150 acre mixed crop farm toward a more sustainable future.

Visit Deep Roots Valley Farm on Facebook.

I’ve mentioned before that the average size farm in the USA is about 400 acres. Will is on 150 acres. 150 acre working farms are rapidly disappearing  especially ones that are still trying to rely on row crops. I think 500 acres is about the minimum to make a row crop farm viable. Will and Kelly moved back to her family’s farm and are helping to transition it from a traditional crop and dairy farm to a grass based meat farm. Listen to the conversation for the details.
