Farm was no-till conventional before we purchased it in 2018. We have amended the soil per soil test in fall 2018 and 2019 and planted cover crops, grass and clover spring 2019 that are growing fairly well considering the wet spring and dry summer. We grew pumpkins and a grower grew produce in 2019 with success!
