Perennial Food Production
One of the most sustainable food production enterprises available is the bounty that nature already gives us every year without planting.
Perennial plants and trees from asparagus to chestnuts love Iowa soils. And the soil loves them. Imagine food production that keeps the life of the soil intact from year to year. No tilling. No tearing up the soil web. No exposing our top soil to erosion from wind and rain.
We already have models of such farming in Iowa. From Red Fern Farm – operating more than 25 years in the southeast to Versaland just getting started north of Iowa City, farmers are making a living growing perennials.
